Josh Cohen and Boston Review win major award

The Boston Review, edited by Deborah Chasman and FSI's Joshua Cohen, professor of law, political science, and philosophy and CDDRL affiliated faculty, has won the 2010 Utne Independent Press Award for Best Writing. Said Utne, "Crack open Boston Review's generously sized newsprint pages and plunge into a world where poems sit alongside political essays, where fiction coexists with cultural criticism, and where - this is key - every element in the intellectual fiesta is thought-provoking and expertly crafted. When the 35-year-old bimonthly added more investigative reporting to its repertoire last year, we nearly swooned. Let mainstram publications give in to the perceived demand for bite-sized news; Boston Review provides the exquisite main course."
