The Hopkins Press Journals Division is pleased to announce the launch of Cusp: Late 19th-/Early 20th-Century Cultures, a new journal that focuses on 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.

 “It’s so great to be up and running with Cusp’s first issue. We are looking forward to hearing what our readers have to say about these provocative position pieces and — of course — beyond Issue 1, are excited about receiving field-defining submissions,” said Editor Kate Hext, of University of Exeter. Cusp’s 3-person editorial team includes Hext, Kristin Mahoney of Michigan State University, and Alex Murray of Queen’s University, Belfast.

The introduction to the journal’s inaugural issue notes that “Cusp is founded on our conviction that studying literature and art in their historical contexts has tremendous political relevance for our current moment and that turning to this particular period of enormous change, the long turn of the century, can speak to and inform our experience of our own era of crisis and transition.”

“I first discussed the possibility of launching a journal that eventually became Cusp with the editorial team in January 2020.  I was greatly impressed by their collective vision for the publication and the energy they brought to the project,” said Hopkins Press Journals Publisher William Breichner, “It’s exciting to finally launch Cusp.”

Cusp publishes two issues per year and is available both in print and online via Project MUSE.
