As you can see by the variety of issues touched upon in this
newsletter, ACASA is very much alive and well. Our membership
has grown significantly in numbers as well as in degree of
commitment to the serious study and presentation of African
arts. ACASA is clearly a mature organization now and this is due
to the interest and hard work of all of you, but especially to
past Board members. I offer our thanks to all of them and
specifically to Arnold Rubin for his persistence over the years
in trying to get one of the least organizable groups of people
organized. Fortunately, both he and Doran Ross remain on the
Board providing us with much needed continuity.

Now, having praised all of you, may I emphasize the importance of
several of the issues raised in the newsletter.

Our sessions at the last ASA meetings clearly demonstrated the
increasing need for an expanded newsletter. More and more is
happening and we all need to keep informed, so, please keep us
posted on what you are doing and what you know of that might be
of interest and aid to others. Contributions for the newsletter
should be sent to Mary Jo Arnoldi, Department of Anthropology,
NHB 112, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. 20560.

We are serious about seeking a logo for our "new and improved"
newsletter, so unless you want to risk the Board's eclectic
tastes, get your contributions in now for the Spring number.

We anticipate two more newsletter this year. The next one in
late spring will have the updated membership list, "notes and
queries" from you, and the results of the Board's current
deliberations. Then in the fall we'll circulate the final
program for the ACASA panels at the ASA meetings in Denver.

I look forward to working with you during this transitional year
so please be in touch.

As presented in ACASA Newsletter No. 13, By-Law revisions
were unanimously approved with the following amendments:
A. The position of Newsletter Editor be separated from that
of Secretary/Treasurer with the former to be selected
from the Board of Directors by the Board.
B. Institutional and Individual dues be increased to $20 per
year (Special Student, Unemployed and Retired Membership
remains at $5)
The fully revised By-Laws are included with this Newsletter.

Elected to the Board of Directors to serve until the 1989
Triennial were: Philip Ravenhill, Doran H. Ross, Christopher
Roy, and Suzanne Blier. (This includes the new Board Member
added with the new By-Law revisions.) Replacing Arnold Rubin,
Paula Ben-Amos, and Henry Drewal. Mary Kujawski was elected
as Secretary/Treasurer.
Board Members serving second half of their term:
Mary Jo Arnoldi, Rosalyn Walker, and Phil Peek. Arnold Rubin
is serving his term on the Board as Past President for the
same period.

Phil Peek- President
Mary Kujawski Secretary Treasurer
Mary Jo Arnoldi-Newsletter Editor
Suzanne Blier Chair of the Arts and Humanities Standing
Phil Ravenhill Chair of the Social Sciences Standing Committee.

With the elections at the 1987 ASA meeting in Denver the
transition from the old By-Laws to the new will have been completed

The College Art Association has provided its affiliated
organizations with a time slot for special meetings at the
forthcoming CAA meeting in Boston. Jean Borgatti will chair
a panel on "Art as History in Africa" for the ACASA special
meeting. k

The ACASA Membership voted a $300 travel stipend for one
ACASA member to participate in CAA to be awarded by the Panel
Chair. Unfortunately, notification of the Special Session
was not received until after the deadline for the last ACASA
Newsletter so its announcement could only be made at the
Business Meeting.

There was also general agreement among the membership at the
Business Meeting that ACASA should try to improve its input
to CAA panel organization. Suzanne Blier in her capacity as
Chair of the Arts and Humanities Standing Committee will lead
this effort.

The ACASA membership reaffirmed its interest in having the
Triennial hosted by the National Museum of African Art in the
Spring of 1989.

A motion was raised and passed to urge AFRICAN ARTS to run
notes and bibliography at the end of their respective
articles and to consider formatting the magazine so that
offprints could be produced.

The 1987 ASA Meeting will be held at the Radisson Hotel,
November 19-23, in Denver, Colorado. As with the past three
years ACASA will organize all art panels. At the annual
Business Meeting the following panels were proposed by their
respective Chairs. (see Call for Papers in this Newsletter

As with the past years three years ACASA will organize all
art panels so that they run continuously in the same room to
avoid conflicts. Phil Peek will act as the ACASA Program
coordinator for the Denver meetings. Chairs organizing panels
(whetherthey are listed below or not) are responsible for
submitting the completed panel information including the title,
names of participants and their paper abstracts to Phil Peek.
Phil will also be putting together panels and individuals who are
not members of completed panels and wish to submit paper
abstracts please send them directly to Phil. DEADLINE FOR
30, 1987

The following panels were proposed for the Denver ASA
meetings at the ACASA business meeting. If you wish to
participate on one of these panels please send your paper
abstracts directly to the designated Chair.


Panel Chair: Martha Anderson
The panel will consider how ideas about nature are expressed
in African art. The papers might concern manifestations of
nature spirits in masquerades, figure sculpture, or ritual; art
which symbolically refers to nature without representing nature )
spirits per se; or art, which incorporates or represents
medicines to harness the powers of nature. Papers which deal
with ephermeral images of nature, ritual performances and
proxemics will be considered as well as those which focus on
sculpture. Please send abstracts to:
Martha Anderson
School of Art and Design
Alfred University
Alfred, New York 14802

Panel Chair: James Bellis
For those of you who are involved in teaching introductory
anthropology classes, you have noticed that for the most part in
textbooks the subject of art is usually last lumped somewhere
together with religion. It seems to me that this is a statement
of a general problem anthropologists have had in integrating the
aesthetic dimensions of human behavior in any effective way in

their working model of cultural processes. If any people would
care to submit papers which would address this broad topic, the
role of artistic behavior in culture, or in the evolution of the
human condition, etc. I would be most interested in organizing
the panel. Please send abstracts to:
James Bellis
Department of Anthropology
University of Notre Dame
Notre Dame, Indiana 46556

Panel Chair: Marla Berns
The objective of this panel is to explore how-ceramic
traditions contribute to our understanding of the roles, meanings
and history of art in Africa. Papers may deal with contemporary
or historical terra cottas (vessels or sculpture) of utilitarian
or ritual function. Participants may introduce new or little
known traditions or may offer new interpretations of known forms.
Preference, however, will be given to papers that deal critically
with one or more of the following suggested topics: how ceramic
arts inform us about social processes, values or modes of
establishing identity; how ceramic arts help reconstruct or
communciate a group's history (including references to
relationships with other groups, either indigenous or foreign);
or how ceramic arts relate to or are informed by other arts
produced by a group. Abstracts are due by 1 March. Final papers
(20 minutes in length) should be completed by 1 November for
circulation to participants afid the discussant. It is hoped that
these and additional papers on ceramic traditions will lead to a
publication in a special issue of African Arts I propose to
organize. Please send a copy of this proposal to anyone you
think may be interested in participating in the panel and/or
journal issue. Please send abstracts to:
Marla Berns
1330 Federal Ave #6
Los Angeles, CA 90025 (evening: 213 477-7540; day 213 322-4532)

Panel Chair: David Binkley
This panel will center on the relationship between style and
meaning which emerges in performances. For example, Binkley's
contribution will center on Munyinga a southern Kuba raffia
masquerade figure. The paper will discuss its formal style
(choice and arrangement of costume details and accoutrements) and
his performance (gestures and style of speaking) and relate these
to Kuba world view. If anyone would like to pursue a panel
addressing these issues please send abstracts to:
David Binkley
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
4525 Oak St.
Kansas City, Missouri 64111

Panel Chair: Michael Conner
A staggering variety of headrest shapes were used by peoples
throughout Africa to support the neck and head while sleeping.
By day, they could often be used as stools. But to the Africans
who used them they were more than functional pillows and chairs.
Headrests often carried historical, ritual, personal and symbolic
connotations. The papers should strive to examine the importance
of the headrest as a vehicle for cultural expression and show
why, as a type, the headrest must be regarded as an important
aesthetic locus in African Art. Please send abstracts to:
Michael Conner
821 West'Sixth Street
Bloomington, Indiana 47401

Panel Chair: Kate Ezra
The art of the Dogon people was among the first in Africa to
attract the attention of anthropologists and art historians, yet
our understanding of Dogon art has not kept pace with that of
other areas of African art. Many of the older studies now
present problems in methodology and interpretation. This panel
will present fresh looks at past studies as well as the results
of recent field research on Dogon art. Please sent abstracts to:
Kate Ezra
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Fifth Ave. at 82nd Street.
New York, New York 10028,

Panel Chair: Peggy Gilfoy
This panel will focus on African textile design. Such topics
as the symbols, development, dispersal and influences on patterns
and the basic composition of the cloth are sought for this
session. Please send abstracts to:
Peggy Gilfoy
825 W. Kissey Blvd
Indianapolis, Indiana 46208

Panel Chair: Jean Kennedy
Send paper abstracts to:
Jean Kennedy
996 Oak St.
San Francisco, California 94117

Panel Chair: Peter Mark
Papers should address historical and/or stylistic connections
between fiber horned masks of Mande peoples in the Senegambia and
Bissau and those which are used in adjacent regions in West
Africa. Send paper abstracts to:
Peter Mark
Art Department
Wesleyan University
Middletown, Connecticut 06457

Panel Chair: Christine Mullen Kreamer
This panel will explore the importance of shrines in the
study of African art. The ways in which shrines are constructed,
maintained, and manipulated may reveal much about a society's
social and religious organization and their world view.
Categories of art that may be explored within this tipic include,
among others, the formal analyses of the types, styles, and
functions of carvings and other ritual paraphernalia used within
a particular shrine context (or series of shrines). The art of
ritual performance in the invocation of shrines, the construction
and aesthetic intent of ritual text, and the spatial orientation
of shrines are other relevant topics to consider for this panel -
-as well as changes that occur over time in the configuration of
shrines. All ideas are welcome. Send paper abstracts to:
Christine Muellen Kreamer
1706 Euclid St., N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20009
(202) 234-6780

Panel Chair: Ray Silverman
Papers should explore the integration of script
(European/Arabic/Indigenous) in an aesthetic context in Africa.
Send paper abstracts to:
Ray Silverman
Department of Art History-
University of California,- Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz, California 95064

Panel Chair: Mikelle Smith Omari
The tendency to categorize power along lines of gender and to
express these dichotomies in artistic terms has been increasingly
noted in the recent publications by scholars working in Africa
and the African Diaspora. Yet, most of these studies have tended
to focus on either male OR female power and to look at their
contexts and art forms in isolation rather than in juxtaposition.
This panel aims to go beyond past scholarship by attempting
to look at gender in each cultural area in more balanced and
dynamic juxtapositions and constrasts of male and female power
and imagery. It is hoped that papers move beyond a descriptive,
interpretive level towards general and particular theoretical
analyses and paradigms. These in turn may aid in a more complete
understanding of the dynamics of gender, power, and art in
particular societies.
The following issues are of special interest: 1. Are there
socially, ritually or politically defined power behaviors
assigned specifically to males and females? 2. Under what
conditions are gender lines or boundaries arbitrary or fluid and
transposed? 3. When females wield significant social, political,

religious power, are they functionally and/or ritually viewed as
"males" ? 4. How is power defined in the specific society? Who
defines it? What variables are involved?
Power is here defined as the ability or authority to control
and influence others, usually outside the domestic context.
Power may be expressed in individual or .comm al -terms'and may be
overt or covert.
The call for papers if for a DOUBLE PANEL. It is hoped that
this panel will serve as the basis for a major symposium on the
theme which the SSRC is interested in sponsoring. A publication
and exhibition in the California State University Museum are
other projected goals. Current participants include Tamara
Northern, Marilyn Houlberg, Dolores Yonker, with Robin Poyner as
The Women's Caucus of the ASA has asked to sponsor this panel
for the Denver meetings, but they need to receive all abstracts
by March for their programming. Please send abstracts to
Mikelle Omari
Department of Art
California State University
1250 Bellflower Blvd.
Long Beach, California 90840

Panel Chair: Arnold Rubin
The panel is intended to critically assess the state of
African art scholarship with special reference to the subjects of
research, the credentials and. orientations of researchers, the
approaches used (including underlying assumptions about culture,
history and the promotion of class interests) the formats and
frameworks in which results are presented, and the beneficiaries
thereof. Papers are invited on arts associated with slavery,
institutionalized warfare, human sacrifice, maintainance of
social/political/economic hierarchies, oppression of minority
populations and women; and various aspects of the global commerce
in African art, including its origins, implications, and impact
on participants, African and non African fakes, exhibition and
publication strategies, access to research materials and
relations between scholars, museums, cultural agencies, dealers
and collectors.
One or two sessions depending on response. Twenty minute
presentations, followed by roundtable discussion among
participants and open discussion. Accepted abstracts will be
circulated among participants by 1 June. Finished papers should
be circulated among participants one month before the meeting
(dates to follow) Please spread the word among others likely to
be interested in participating.
Expressions of interest so far: Jim Faris, Si Ottenberg
(although he may be out of the country) Victoria Ebin, Robin
Poynor, Christraud Geary, Suzanne Blier, Edward Alpers, Allen

University of Washington, Seattle. 4

"The Akan of Ghana" presents an introduction to the art and
history of the Akan peoples of Ghana.

"Bono Brass Casting" examines the lost wax process as
practiced among the northern Akan.

"Atano: River Dieties of the Akan" provides an introduction
to one of the oldest and most revered religious institutions of
the Akan (includes unique footage of spirit possession)

The University of Kansas, Department of Architecture recently
hosted the second International and Interdisciplinary Conference
on Built Form and Culture on Nov 5-8, 1986. The conference
brought together several hundred architects, art historians,
anthropologists, political scientists, cultural geographers,
social historians, and environmental psychologists to address the
broad theme of the "Purposes in Understanding Socio-cultural
Aspects of Built Envirnoments". Africanists participated in a
number of sessions. LaBelle "Prussin, Deborah Pellow, Susan Kent,
John Bower and Norma Wolff presented papers on both West and East
African topics. These papers addressed changing symbolic 0
conceptions of space in the domestic context; socio-political
complexity and the organization of space; gender and built form;
the impact of socio-cultural systems on vernacular form; and
craft specialization and the organization of space in the
domestic environment. Members who are interested in vernacular
architecture should contact LaBelle Prussin for information about
the next conference tentatively planned for 1988.

Excerpt from the Pacific Coast Africanist Association
Newsletter. Vol X nos. 2&3 (Spring/Summer 1986) "I journeyed to
UCLA for the 7th Triennial meeting on African Art held at the
Museum of Cultural History, on the Westwood Campus. The majority
of the panels I attended were a feast for my eyes, an on occasion
my ears. Wonderful tapes, videos, slides and films featuring
wonders from the world of Af. traditional art. This is the first
conference I've attended, where most of the action took place in
the dark. The chair introduced the panelists, then directed the
projectin booth to turn off the lights and start the projectors,
Not being an AF. art specialist, I found myself in attendance
as an observer at an event which begged for its own internal
privacy. Several clans and lineages were represented. Members
of such a group spent most of their time talking to each other.
On the odd occasion, they would cross clan and lineage barriers
and speak briefly to members of other groups. Experts on Benin

bombarded each other with questions about those bronzes. While
museum curators spoke about exhibits and small budgets. Only if
the curator was interested in displaying a Benin bronze did
members of the two groups waste time on each other.
0 Also while many of the panels were an .audio-visual delight,
there were no Af. artists or performers doing their thing. What
a let doen to come out of a great presentation on Nigerian Art,
with color and sound the works and simply go off for a
cafeteria hamburger with no drumming or dancing. However, the
conference was the product of much hard work and the program
organizers at UCLA Arnold Rubin and Doran Ross are to be
congratulated .... these two worked very hard to make the
Triennial a success"

As more and more Africanists strive to integrate the data
storage, wordprocessing and communications potential of the
personal computer into their scholarship there is an increasing
need to band together to offer one another information and
support. We will soon have the potential to access, share,
manage and enhance information including pictures via computer.
For a start, Michael Conner would like to know if others in ACASA
who presently own Macintosh computers would like to begin a user
group to work towards keeping abreast of developments in hardware
and software including interesting application ideas. If you
are interested please contact Michael Conner, 821 West Sixth
Street, Bloomington, IN 47401.. Please include information on the
kind of equipment and software you are presently using. Michael
has access to MacPlus, Apple HD-20, Imagewriter II/Laserwriter
S and use MS-Word 3.0, Think Tank 1.2, Helix 2.0, Macpaint,
Macdraw, etc software. He also has limited access to a modem.
This issue of the newsletter includes your 1987 ACASA
membership renewal form. Please take the time to fill it out and
send it in to Mary Kujawski.

Thanks to all the people who sent in contributions to the
newsletter. As we work towards developing the Notes and
Queries section, etc. we will be totally dependent on you for
submissions. Let us know your ideas about what sections
you would like to see as regular feature in the newsletter, but
most importantly please send us the items to fill these sections.
