Cusp: Late 19th-/Early 20th-Century Cultures is a new home for field-defining scholarship on the works, authors, artists, problems, and phenomena that defined the dynamic period from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Cusp encourages interdisciplinary scholarship, including (but not limited to) work on literature, the visual arts and cinema, theatre studies, intellectual history, publishing, periodical studies, and music.

Cusp: Late 19th-/Early 20th-Century Cultures is a new home for field-defining scholarship on the works, authors, artists, problems, and phenomena that defined the dynamic period from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Cusp encourages interdisciplinary scholarship, including (but not limited to) work on literature, the visual arts and cinema, theatre studies, intellectual history, publishing, periodical studies, and music. All movements and genres will feature in the articles and reviews on its pages, from detective fiction to journalism, aestheticism to anarchism, realism to Vorticism. Our journal welcomes new perspectives on canonical authors, artists, and events of the period, as well as hitherto marginalized voices. We also intend to center a more global or transnational approach to the period. Contributions that explore literature and culture from across the globe, from Great Britain, Ireland, and North America to Europe, the Middle East, South America, Africa, and Australasia, will be an essential element in the journal’s contents.

Journal Details

Articles should be 7000-9,000 words inclusive of all notes and formatted in line with the most recent edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. All submissions should be wholly anonymous.

It is the author’s responsibility to obtain permissions to reproduce images for an article. While lower-quality images can be submitted for the purpose of review, all images for publication should be a 300 dpi TIFF file. Submissions should be sent to the editors at cusp.editorial@gmail.com .

Peer Review Policy

Cusp peer-reviews will be constructive, understanding that the peer-review process is an essential part of creating the scholarly community we want to be. Article submissions will be read first by one of the editors to determine the article’s suitability for the journal. At this point we are looking to evaluate: a) whether the article will be of interest to Cusp’s readership, b) its scope and originality, c) the quality of the writing. Unsuitable manuscripts will be returned to the author with feedback. Where articles are sent out for peer review, Cusp uses a double-blind peer review system. Your work will be sent to two leading scholars in the field who we ask to provide detailed comments that will help to strengthen the article. The reviewers will make one of four judgements: 1) that the essay be accepted; 2) that the author undertake minor revisions to the satisfaction of the editors; 3) that substantial revisions be undertaken and the article be peer-reviewed again; 4) that the article be declined. These peer reviews will be evaluated by at least one editor to reach a decision on publication. We aim to provide reports and a decision for contributors within three months of initial submission.

Cusp reviews should be rigorous yet quirky, learned but lively. Their subjects must be focused on the long turn of the twentieth century or either side of 1900.

Reflecting the interdisciplinary character of the journal, we strongly encourage reviews that range beyond the printed page. Cusp review essays should incorporate a number of works and subjects could include any of the following:

  • Monograph, biography, novel, or new edition
  • Gallery or Museum exhibition
  • Conference or symposium
  • Documentary
  • Film or television adaptation
  • Podcasts

Each review should be 2,000 words in length, formatted in accordance with the most recent edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.

We do not accept unsolicited reviews. If you have an idea you would like to develop into a review for Cusp, please provide a short 200-word pitch and brief biography to cusp.editorial@gmail.com
