New Journals

Journal covers for Journal of Indian Ocean World Studies and Victorian Poetry, the two new journals in the Hopkins Press roster for 2024

Victorian Poetry

Devin Garofalo, University of North Texas

Founded in 1962 to further the aesthetic study of the poetry of the Victorian Period in Britain (1830–1914), Victorian Poetry publishes articles from a broad range of theoretical and critical angles, including but not confined to new historicism, feminism, and social and cultural issues. The journal has expanded its purview from the major figures of Victorian England (Tennyson, Browning, the Rossettis, etc.) to a wider compass of poets of all classes and gender identifications in nineteenth-century Britain and the Commonwealth.

Journal of Indian Ocean World Studies

Gwyn Campbell, McGill University

The Journal of Indian Ocean World Studies (JIOWS) is the creation of the Indian Ocean World Centre (IOWC) at McGill University. It publishes original peer reviewed articles by established and emerging scholars in the social sciences, humanities, and related disciplines that contribute to an understanding of the Indian Ocean World (IOW) and its constituent parts, from early times to the present day. The IOW is here defined as a macro-region running from Africa to East Asia, comprising both maritime and terrestrial zones.

Brookings Papers on Economic Activity

Janice Eberly, Northwestern University and James H. Stock, Harvard University / Editors 

The Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) is a semi-annual academic conference and journal that pairs rigorous research with real-time policy analysis to address the most urgent economic challenges of the day. Working drafts of the papers are presented and discussed at the conference typically held twice each year in spring and fall. The final papers and discussion comments are subsequently published with writeups of general discussions from each conference in the journal.

Cusp: Late 19th-/Early 20th-Century Cultures

Kate Hext, University of Exeter, Kristin Mahoney, Michigan State University, and Alex Murray, Queen’s University, Belfast / Editors 

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.

J19: The Journal of Nineteenth Century Americanists

Sarah Chinn, Hunter College and Brigitte Fielder, University of Wisconsin-Madison / Editors
