Egyptian, Classical, and Ancient Middle Eastern Art
The Museum's collection of ancient Egyptian art is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest in the world. Many of the works on view are presented in a major reinstallation of more than 500 objects on the third floor of the renovated Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing. It includes a chronological presentation ranging from 1350 B.C. during the reign of Akhenaten and his wife Nefertiti, through the regime of Cleopatra VII. It includes such diverse objects as elaborate cosmetic containers and pieces of jewelry of the New Kingdom in alabaster, wood, ivory, faience, and gold, important Dynasty XXV reliefs of the major deities Amun, Mut, and Khonsu, as well as the world famous Brooklyn Black Head of the Ptolemaic Period. Another portion of the galleries contains a thematic exhibition of almost 200 objects entitled Temples, Tombs, and the Egyptian Universe

Editorial: African Studies
by Prof. Gloria T Emeagwali
Chief Editor of Africa Update
In a previous issue of Africa Update we examined some of the methodologies associated with the study of Africa. It was argued that the eurocentric agenda dominates discourse, and that strategies of deception coexist with well-meaning interpretations. To some extent this issue expands on the previous discussion, but we also go beyond it to examine some of the institutional structures which prevail in three regions of the world, namely, the former Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and Africa itself. Dr Vladimir Shubin, the Deputy Director of the Institute for African Studies in the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, points out in his contribution that Northeast Africa was the initial focus of Russian Africanists but this interest has expanded to include the entire continent in terms of a wide range of social and economic issues, including gender relations, the economic crisis in the era of IMF/ World Bank Structural Adjustment and the role of Africa in the world civiliization process.

T his impressive study approaches two crafts among the Mande peoples of West Africa. Here, pottery making is an exclusively female pursuit, while leatherworking is dominated by males. The author explores the two in depth, producing a valuable contribution to the scholarship of West African culture and, at the same time, demonstrating how craft technology in addition to artistic style is essential for reconstructing and comprehending the artistic heritage of a culturally complex region. In examining the roles of these craftspeople in the rise and fall of empires, the development of trans-Saharan trade networks, and the spread of Islam, the author brings into question the "one-tribe, one-style" interpretations that have dominated studies of West African art. back Native Paths: American Indian Art from the Collection of Charles and Valerie Diker

Between the Natural and Supernatural
A renaissance in the visual arts of the sort that occurred in Nigeria, Senegal, Ethiopia, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and South Africa has yet to unfold in East and Central Africa. Writers and poets, however, perhaps as precursors, have found an "African" voice, and have created new images to address contemporary issues. Authors Ngugi wa Thiong'o and Joseph Kariuki of Kenya, Okot p'Bitek and Taban lo Liong of Uganda, and Tchicaya U Tam'si of Congo Republic, respond to today's exigencies with language that is powerful. Although foreignÑ French or EnglishÑit is transformed to serve other cultural canons and needs. While a number of outstanding visual artists have appeared, their numbers are small. One of the reasons is a demographic one: the total population of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zaire is less than that of Nigeria alone. In addition, recurrent migrations from Ethiopia south across savannah lands to graze herds or to escape slave traders resulted in the periodic shifting of peoples, and the disrupting of patterns of continuity. The stability of farming communities, which provided a consistent structure for the arts, and the proximity of nearby rain forests, which created environments for the great traditions of West Africa, didn't exist in East Africa. Art forms in East Africa consisted of items worn or carried such as jewelry, basketry, vessels, rugs, and the arts of adornment. And architectural relics such as tombs and mosques along the Swahili coast demonstrate the early artistic and religious influence of Islam, exemplified by the carved doors of Lamu, and the arts of calligraphy and body painting.

Introduction: Diffusion and other Problems in the History of African States
Professor James Giblin, Department of History, The University of Iowa A discussion of the following African States:
  • Asante Benin Kingdom Luba and Kuba The Yoruba and the States of Ife and Oyo
Introduction In the study of the African past, attributing innovation to outside origins and influences has been very common. Sometimes developments are said to be the work of people who came from outside Africa, while other changes are credited to Africans from other regions. The development of states ­ institutions which create centralized government, exercise political authority through bureaucracy and armies, and integrate territories into unified economic systems - is one of the aspects of African history which has frequently been explained in this way. Writers have often claimed, for example, that the idea of the state first developed in Africa among Egyptians during the era of the pharaohs, and thereafter spread to the rest of Africa. Because these explanations remain influential, historians have been particularly interested in what might be called the "pre-history" of African states, that is, the developments which led African societies to create centralized political systems. Historians and archaeologists have learned a great deal about the developments which preceded the emergence of states in Africa. They can now say with confidence that in most cases, Africans developed states in response to local conditions and opportunities. Rarely does the diffusion of ideas from distant sources seem to have been important in bringing about the formation of a state. Today historians do not think that the history of African states is a story of the spread of influences from Egypt, Europe or Asia into the rest of Africa. Instead, the story they see involves African people living in a great variety of locations who use their political skills and wisdom to create for themselves centralized systems of government.

The Former Kingdoms The western bantou are at the origin of more Ancient kingdoms in Democratic Republic of Congo, the most known is the Kongo kingdom (15th century) and the other one is probably the Kuba kingdom (17th century). The oriental bantou began with the kingdoms Luba (16th century) and Lunda (17th century). The Kongo, Lunda, Luba, and Kuba state systems shared certain common features, I.The Kongo kingdom The Kongo Kingdom was the first state on the west coast of Central Africa to come into contact with Europeans. Portuguese sailors under Diogo Cao landed at the mouth of the Congo River in 1482 . Cao traveled from Portugal to Kongo and back several times during the 1480s, bringing missionaries to the Kongo court and taking Kongo nobles to Portugal in 1485. In the 1490s, the king of Kongo asked Portugal for missionaries and technical assistance in exchange for ivory and other desirable items, such as slaves and copperwares a relationship, ultimately detrimental to the Kongo, which continued for centuries. Competition over the slave trade had repercussions far beyond the boundaries of Kongo society. Slave-trading activities created powerful vested interests among both Africans and foreigners; the Portuguese and later the Dutch, French, British, and Arabs.

    Verwarringen en andere problemen in de historie van Afrikaanse staten Professor James Giblin, Department of History, The University of Iowa Een discussie over de volgende Afrikaanse staten : De Yoruba en de staten van Ife en Oyo Benin Kingdom Asante ... Luba en Kuba Introductie Historici en archeaologen hebben veel geleerd over de ontwikkeling naar de behoefte van Afrikaanse staten. Ze kunnen nu met vertrouwen vertellen dat in meeste gevallen de Afrikanen staten ontwikkeld hebben in reactie op de lokale condities en mogelijkheden. Zelden zijn ideëen van aanwezige inmengingen uit afgelegen bronnen de aanleiding geweest om de formatie van een staat te laten groeien. Heden ten dage denken de historici echt niet meer aan het verhaal dat verspreid is over de invloeden van Egypte, Europa of Azië die naar de rest van Afrika zijn overgewaait. In plaats daarvan zien zij het verhaal waarin Afrikaanse mensen leven in een grote variëteit van locaties die hun politieke vaardigheden en kennis gebruiken om voor henzelf een gecentraliseerd systeem van regeringen op te bouwen. De Yoruba en de staten van Ife en Oyo De Yoruba-sprekende volken van Zuidwest Nigeria zijn erfgenamen van zowel een oud als een cultureel volle mensheid, en met een tragische historie. De Yoruba cultuur is bekend om haar kunstvaardige triomfen, aparte mondelingen literatuur, complexe behuizingen van goden, en stedelijke levensstijl. Toch is het ook een cultuur die miljoenen van haar mannen, vrouwen en kinderen naar Amerika verscheepte als slaven. Haar hoeveelheid en culturele verandering werd zo groot dat haar religies nog steeds aanwezig zijn in het moderne Brazilië en Cuba, en tegenwoordig ook in de steden van Oost Verenigde Staten van Amerika beleeft worden. Deze combinatie van culturele triomfen en menselijke tragedie vormen in de ervaring van de Yoruba tot één van de meest fascinerende onderwerpen van historische studies in Afrika.

    The ASA makes available at least $3000 annually to assist groups with shipping costs for book donations to African libraries and schools. The Committee generally provides grants in amounts from $200 to $1000. Those applying for partial funding of a project should clearly show how additional funding would be solicited. The grants are intended to encourage innovative projects that incorporate essential elements, including: 1. Recipient participation. Ideally all book donation programs will be part of a broader academic liaison between institutions in Africa and the US. While large scale donations of container-loads of books can be effective, the ASA is trying to fill a perceived gap by increasing the number of small to medium-sized projects that focus on specific, articulated needs. 2. High quality materials. While books need not be new, they should be in good condition and relevant to the recipient's needs. Books can be procured from libraries' duplicates, personal libraries, bookstores, students and publishers. 3. Attention to details of logistics. The project plan should include a place to store books as they are being collected, a means of reviewing the books for physical quality and relevance to the recipient's request, materials and staff for packing, a means of shipping to Africa, and all necessary paperwork for customs and shipping. The ASA cannot offer any services in arranging shipping or other logistics. Our role is to supply funding to the extent possible.

    Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, submitted pursuant to Commission on Human Rights resolution 1999/78 CONTENTS Paragraphs Page Summary The Special Rapporteur continued to carry out his mandate by maintaining cooperation with the countries he had visited (South Africa, France, Kuwait) and drawing on the various communications transmitted to him by the Governments of a number of countries (Belarus, Cyprus, Costa Rica, Denmark, Iraq, Finland, Netherlands) and by non-governmental organizations. This report adds further details to the report he submitted to the last session of the General Assembly (A/54/347). The Special Rapporteur observes that manifestations of racism, racial discrimination and related intolerance are constantly recurring in different regions of the world. In addition to the cases of xenophobia and anti-Semitism, the Special Rapporteur notes that discrimination against the Roma persists in a number of European countries, where they are subjected to exclusion and marginalization. He undertook a mission to the Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary, the report on which can be found in an addendum (E/CN.4/2000/16/Add.1). The Special Rapporteur also demonstrates that discriminatory application of the death penalty still continues in the United States of America.

    How should Zimbabweans respond to the latest interference by "war vets' in labour issues?

    Not all the contributions refer to the topic. Thank you for your suggestions - your input is valued. War Vets and labour issues TOP
    I have been close to an incident involving one company, and it appears that the war vets may be winning some friends. In these hard times, any amount received is Godsend and people can easily be fooled into believing that War Vets are doing a lot of good. For example one at one company, people who earn about $2500 per week were paid amounts ranging from $18000-00 to $33000-00 per person, after a dispute over unpaid overtime..... It would be folly just to dismiss the war vets as mad, as extortionists etc. because there are winning over people. I have noticed that many MDC leaders have a tendency to believe that "the people will not be fooled". Well, think again..... There is need for a massive education campaign about the repercussions of these short term gains. People must be told that next year, when ZPF loses (or even if it wins) Chinos will be nowhere to be seen when they are in trouble with disciplinary hearings or job losses.
