W. Ralph Eubanks has been named the new editor of Virginia Quarterly Review, a year after the acclaimed Charlottesville literary magazine lost its last boss amid turmoil over a staffer’s suicide.

Eubanks, 55, a scholar known for his work on race relations, has most recently served as the director of publishing for the Library of Congress.

He will replace Ted Genoways who left a year ago after nine-year stint that brought the tiny journal national attention via six National Magazine Awards. But Genoways also ended up the subject of a so-called “workplace bullying” controversy when some colleagues accused him of harassing his managing editor, Kevin Morrissey, who committed suicide in 2010.
