About Mark Cohen

Mark Cohen was born in New York and was raised there in an extended Sephardic family. He is a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, and his new history of the Sephardic Jews, Last Century of a Sephardic Community: The Jews of Monastir, 1839-1943, is an original history of a model Sephardic community. New York's Forward newspaper called it "an important addition to Sephardic studies."

Cohen has worked for newspapers and also as a public relations professional for the computer industry. His by-lined stories have appeared in the Contra Costa Times, Los Angeles Times, Newsday and the Daily News.

Cohen has produced scholarly articles works - on the subjects of literature and history - that have been published in a variety of peer-reviewed academic publications. His work on trends in Jewish-American fiction appeared in Midstream magazine, and his historical work has been featured in The Turkish Studies Association Bulletin, History of Photography, and the Journal of Jewish Studies.

Cohen has delivered talks on Sephardic folklore, culture, and history at Jewish community centers, synagogues, libraries, and colleges across the country.
