Letter from the President:

As we move into the Fall quarter of 1990 just a
reminder that ACASA will have 14 panels at the
Baltimore ASA from November 1-4, 1990. Along
with ACASA-sponsored panels there are arts
panels of interest to our membership organized by
Maria Bems and Judith Bettelheim, Peter Mark,
Warren Robbins, and Terry Childs. It will be a very
full meeting and again ACASA is well represented
with quality panels. I invite you all to celebrate at
the ACASA party during the Baltimore ASA.

For our members who will be attending this year's
ASA, the ACASA Business Meeting will be held
on November 3, 1990, Saturday afternoon from
1:00 230 p.m. Please check your ASA program
for the meeting room. During the Business
Meeting we will be holding elections for four new
Board members. Retiring members include
Frederick Lamp, Fred Smith, Philip Ravenhill, and
Doran Ross. I would like to take this opportunity to
thank each of them for their dedicated service to
the Arts Council during the past years. They have
been actively involved in organizing the ACASA
panels at the ASA and the Triennial Symposium in
Washington and have worked on various
committees to plan and organize ACASA

I will be stepping down as President after the
Baltimore ASA and I would like to take this
opportunity to say that it has been a pleasure to
serve the membership. The Triennial in
Washington was exciting and brought many of us
together for four intense days of panels and
discussions. Besides the Triennial, the ACASA
panels at the past ASA and at CAA demonstrated
our strong commitment to the study of the Art of
Africa and the Diaspora. ACASA is moving ahead
on a number of initiatives on the arts including the
book distribution program to African museums,
libraries and universities and the slide project and
we expect that our involvement in these and other
projects will increase in the future. In the next year
ACASA will begin to actively plan for the Triennial
Symposium on African Art to be held in April 1992
at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. We will
be sending out the call for panels and papers

soon after the Baltimore ASA in order to give
everyone enough time to plan for participation in
the symposium.

1992 Annual Conference Announcement
of Program Chairs and Call for Session
Chicago, Illinois, February 13-15, 1992
Chicago Hilton and Towers

Proposal Submission Guidelines: Session
proposals should be submitted to the program
chairs in the form of a one- to two-page letter-essay
framing the topic of the session/panel and

2 ACASA Newsletter Number 28, September 1990

explaining any special or timely significance it may
have have for your particular field and/or
discipline. When possible, please outline
potential panelists and procedures. Explanatory
or supportive materials may be included. Please
send a c.v. or biographical statement, mailing
address, and work and home telephone
numbers. We recommend enclosing a
self-addressed, stamped postcard so that the
chairs can acknowledge receipt of your proposal,
and a SASE if you wish any material returned.
(See name and address of art history chair at end
of entry.)

To summarize CAA procedures: The
chairs/co-chairs will consider proposals only from
members. No one may chair a session more than
once every three years, i.e., session chairs in
1992 can not have chaired in 1990 or 1991.
Program chairs/ co-chairs will make their selection
from among eligible proposals solely on the basis
of merit; however, if essentially the same proposal
is received from two or more individuals,
preference may be given to the individual from
the region in which the conference will be held.
Where proposals overlap, the chairs also reserve
the right to select the most considered version or
may, in some cases, suggest a fusion of two or
more versions from among the proposals
submitted. The program chair/co-chairs may
invite submissions from people who have not
submitted proposals but whose experience,
expertise, and outreach would, in the
chair/co-chair's opinion, be important to shaping
an interesting and balanced program. In doing
so, program chair/co-chairs will consider a number
of factors, including which topics were not
covered in recent CAA conferences. As above,
all other things being equal, preference may be
given to artists/scholars from the region in which
the conference will be held.

Considering Encounters

The 1992 art history program will be organized
around the theme "Considering Encounters."
This theme responds directly to the 500th
anniversary of the discovery of America by
Christopher Columbus in 1492. However, the
theme also prompts reflection on the nature and
implications of "encounter" from a variety of
perspectives. The following possible themes for
sessions are suggested: the relationship of
different cultural groups (defined, for example, by
class, gender, or religion) within a larger cultural
superstructure; the relationship between
different cultures in global terms (for example,
within Europe, Asia, Africa, or the Americas; or
between North and South America); the
relationship between different points of view on,
say, a common monument or monograph. The
cultural, social, political, and intellectual
implications of "encounter" for the discipline at
large should be kept in mind by those who are
planning sessions, and a measure of controversy
is expected.

Radically changed session formats are not
envisioned. Chairs should reduce the number of
speakers accepted in order to make room for
more discussion time. Those who plan sessions
may consider pairing papers that present
contradictory points of view, and the use of
commentators is encouraged.

Please submit proposals to the art history chair by
October 1, 1990. Proposals should be sent to:
Sandra Hindman
Dept. of Art History
Kresge Hall 254
Northwestern University
Evanston, IL 60208
phone: 708-491-3230; fax: 708-467-1035.

In Memoriam

Mary Haglhara Kujawski Roberts
1949 1990

Mary Kujawski died at her home in Iowa City on
Sunday, September 2 after a long illness.

Mary was involved in the study and exhibition of
African art for many years, first as Assistant
Director of the Chicago Art Institute and later at
the University of Michigan Museum of Art, where
she was Associate Director of the Graduate
Museum Practice Program. She was elected to
the position of Treasurer of ACASA in 1987 and
served until she became Director of The
University of Iowa Museum of Art in 1988. With
her husband Allen F. Roberts she founded the
African National Museums Project in 1984, and
carried out projects in B6nin, Gabon, and Mali. -
She visited Bdnin in 1984 to study potential
museum sites, especially in Natiteingou, and
again in 1987 when she received a U.S.I.S.
Academic Specialist Grant to create a primary
school education program based on the
collection of G6lddB masks in the ethnographic
museum in Porto Novo. In 1986 she travelled to
Mali with Al to work with the staff of the National
Museum on a photographic survey of Dogon

As Director at Iowa she was instrumental in
mounting the first exhibition of African art in the
Republic of China, and in producing the first
publication on African art, a catalogue of the
Stanley Collection, in the Chinese language.

Mary is survived by her husband Al, by her
step-daughter Avery Olga Davis Roberts and by
her son Seth Michael Kujawski Roberts. A
memorial service is planned at The University of
Iowa Museum of Art on Sunday, September 23,

James de Vere Allen
1936 1990

James de Vere Allen passed away in the
Mombasa Hospital on June 13, 1990. Known to
all his friends as Jim he will be greatly missed both
in academic circles worldwide, and by all his

Jim Allen was bom in Nairobi in 1936. He was
educated from 1940-47 at Kenton College in
Nairobi, and then at King's School Canterbury.
From 1955-59 he read Classics and Politics,
Philosophy and Economics at Magdalen College,
Oxford, from where he graduated with honors.
He joined the Education Office in the Ministry of
Education in Nairobi and during the 10 years that
he was with them he taught at the Duke of York
School (now Lenana) followed by 3 years study
on a Commonwealth Scholarship at the University
of Malaya in Kuala Lumpar. He then returned to
East Africa and lectured for 4 years at Makerere
University, Uganda. In 1970 he joined the Kenya
Museums and moved to Lamu where he
established the Lamu Museum and became the
first Curator. In 1976 he left the Museums and
moved to the University of Nairobi where he was a
Research Fellow in the Institute of African Studies
and a visiting Fellow of the School of Oriental and
African Studies at London University. In 1980 he
retired to the Coast to write privately. Firstly he
lived at Port Reitz moving to Kwale in 1985 where
he created a veritable paradise from what had
previously been dense bush. While establishing
and later running his fruit farm he continued to
submit papers and articles to learned institutions
and papers, as well as working on his main book,
which will be published posthumously sometime
next year, a comprehensive history of the Swahili
culture. He also continued to give lectures,
mainly to visiting students and he also
occasionally acted as tour leader for a prominent
safari company.

Jim Allen takes with him a wealth of knowledge on
coastal culture. In a book on African Islam,

4 ACASA Newsletter Number 28, September 1990

published by the Smithsonian Institute, Mr. Alien
is described as "the leading interpreter of Swahili
culture." He was respected in academic circles
globally and he will be greatly missed. His
untimely death is deeply mourned by his many
friends both here in Kenya and throughout the
world. His house at Kwale had a constant stream
of visitors from all walks of life, distinguished and
humble all welcomed with the warm hospitality
that typified Jim Allen. He was extremely proud of
his beautiful garden and a guided tour was the
highlight of any visit. A mental image of him
inspecting his shamba accompanied by his 5
dogs with the raucous music of his Kasuku in the
background, will live with those who knew him
well, may his soul rest in peace.

Civilization (JBAAC)
JBAAC is a bilingual journal (English/French),
published twice a year, in June and in December.
Its objectives are:
(a) To adopt a multi-dimensional approach to

the dialogue of cultures between Africans
and Blacks in the Diaspora.
(b) To express the authentic richness of the
Arts and Civilization and aspirations of
Black and African peoples of the world. It
therefore opens its pages to all men [sic]
of culture.
(c) To DEFINE and AFFIRM African originality
in the Cultural plane. The guiding principle
is the affirmation of the creative geniuses
of Black and African peoples.

The editorial board will represent the best in all
spheres of scholarship.

Abstract of 250 words to be written in English for
articles in French and in French for articles written
in English. Manuscripts are not returned and only
previously unpublished articles will be printed.
Authors are solely responsible for the views
expressed in their articles. All rights reserved.

Articles should be sent to:
Mr. Z.S. All, Editor-in-Chief

ACASA is printing the following for the
information and further discussion of its members:

"As academics with an interest in Botswana, it is
our responsibility to express concem about the
appearance of the Botswana Review published in
the USA. Its American editor, William Bendig,
published the review in Ivorytown, Connecticut.
Our concerns are both ethical and substantive.

The fundamental issue is one of
misrepresentation. This misrepresentation has
two related dimensions. One is the fact that the
Review uses the country's name and flag in such
a way as to convey the impression that the
publication of the journal has official sanction and
approval. The casual observer might even reach
the conclusion that the content of the Review

ACASA Newsleer Number28, Sptember 1990 9

carries the approval of the Botswana government.
To the best of our knowledge, even after
discussing the matter with the publisher, this is not
so. The impression of official approval is a
potentially serious misrepresentation of the
connection between the Review and Botswana. It
is not edited, produced, or published in the

The second dimension concerns the scholarly
credentials of the Review. There is no editorial
advisory board at this time despite the publication
of one issue and announcement of a second
issue. Moreover, the announced editorial policy
of the Review is that is wil be a non-political
pan-African cultural journal but the publisher and
editor-in-chief's own lead article, "Apartheid
Viewed by an Aesthete," is in itself a blatantly
political document: "When I spoke out against my
country's interference with the sovereign rights of
the Republic of South Africa my indignation
prompted critical sneers. Sovereign rights aside, I
am now convinced that sanctions are unrealistic,
immoral and doomed to failure; divestiture stupid
and counter-productive; divestment pure folly.
From on the spot investigation, it appears that I am
not mistaken." (p. 90) "It is difficult for me to
accept the fanatical anti-South African stance of
such politicians as congressman Ronald Dellums
and Harold Wolpe, ex-Senator Lowell Weicker,
Michael Dukakis, and Jesse Jackson as anything
but blatant and consuming hatred." (p. 94) "As for
contemporary Black Art as known to Americans,
most of the best, from an aesthetic viewpoint, is
White art. That is certainly not to say that art
created by Black artists is in any way inferior in
content or impact, but except in a rare case of
genius, sophistication tends to take the prize."
(p. 96) These are obviously and baldly political in
their content. For a publisher to announce that
the journal will be non-political then write these,
among other, passages is a fundamental

We also disagree with most of the substantive
political positions taken by Mr. Bendig. We have
no objection to his right to express ideas, but we
do not in any way regard Mr. Bendig's opinions as
helpful in the context of positive change in
southern Africa. In fact, those opinions are
harmful. Moreover we do not feel that these

opinions are a true reflection of the policies or
principles of either the government or people of
Botswana or African generally."
