The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) proudly announces the creation of Fire!!!: The Multimedia Journal of Black Studies. Designed to connect Black Studies scholarship with the Digital Revolution in the Age of Communication, Fire!!! serves as a contemporary conduit through which Black Studies knowledge can be distributed. The journalís unique contribution is the use
of the digital world in providing a peer-reviewed venue for scholars who utilize multimedia evidence to advance their theories and interpretations.
Fire!!! is a multi-disciplinary journal that serves primarily the social sciences, arts, and humanities. The journal welcomes research that crosses the lines of
traditional disciplines and focuses on contemporary issues that expand the intellectual realm of Black Studies. Our goal is to use media to increase the kinds of primary evidence that can be brought to bear to expand knowledge.
Fire!!! is interested in obtaining articles, review essays, and reviews for its February and August 2011 issues. All articles and review essays should be between 7,500 and 12,000 words. The maximum file size for each (including media) is 10 mb. Fire!!! publishes reviews of feature films and documentaries, audio recordings, theatrical productions, websites, museum exhibits, and books relevant to teaching
courses on Black life, history, and culture. Scholars interested in submitting reviews should contact the editors before submitting.
Fire!!! will be distributed to institutional libraries through JSTOR. If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge publication visit our website for submission guidelines. www.fire-jbs.org
