Read full description of the books:



In short, African masks are material and conceptual thresholds between self and other, this world and another, current events and what one may make of them. Masquerade often dramatizes paradoxes of ontological, biological, and social differing as defined from one culture to the next; and while masked performances may be inventive, spontaneously playful, and sometimes hilarious, they can also be moving to the point of transcendence. Indeed, the in-between of a mask can provoke reflection, promote healing, threaten revolution, and put life itself into perspective.

This Batch on African masks and masquerade is divided into two parts. In the first, eight articles drawn from the pages of the journal African Arts will present masks as cultural systems followed by classical studies updated by more recent research. The second part of this Batch offers ten papers on women and masquerade, masquerade as spectacle, forms and styles of masks, and questions for future research.

- Allen F. Roberts, Introduction
