the American National Seat of Heritage

Scotland has been chosen to feature in the world-famous Smithsonian Folklife Festival this summer.

The Smithsonian Institution was founded in 1846 in Washington DC, and is the world's largest museum and research complex. It consists of the 16 national museums of the US, a zoo, magazine, press and recording company, and runs an education and outreach programme, the Smithsonian Associates programme.

The Smithsonian's Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage produces an annual Folklife Festival on the National Mall in the heart of Washington DC.

The Festival is a research-based educational 'museum without walls' devoted to grassroots cultural heritage and this year's event will focus on Scotland, Mali and Appalachia. It runs from June 25 to 29 and then July 2 to 6.

In addition to more than one million, American TV, radio and press reaches another 40 million people.

Smithsonian Curator Dr Nancy Groce, who was responsible for drawing together the list of Scottish participants in the Folklife Festival, said:

"This event will bring the vitality and diversity of Scotland's traditional culture to the heart of Washington DC. Through dynamic performances, demonstrations and educational programmes, 'Scotland at the Smithsonian' will explain and celebrate the living traditions that make and sustain Scotland's distinctive culture.

"Our Festival provides a forum for Scots representing a wide range of talents and traditions to speak directly to the American public, sharing their enthusiasm about what makes Scotland Scottish."

Funding support for the Scottish participation in the Folklife Festival has come from the Scottish Executive, VisitScotland and the Scottish Arts Council.

James Boyle, Chairman of the Scottish Arts Council, said:

"The Folklife Festival is a wonderful event and a terrific opportunity to showcase Scotland's musicians, artists and crafts makers in the United States.

"We are delighted to be working with the Smithsonian Institution and other Scottish partners to help create a greater appreciation of Scotland's rich and vibrant culture."

Philip Riddle, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said:

"We are excited at the prospect of sponsoring the Smithsonian Associates programme and the Folklife Festival. Participation in these events provides an excellent platform for us to target a key group of US travellers.

"We are using this opportunity to run an extensive marketing campaign to encourage the Smithsonian's 57,000 members, and the wider US audience, to plan a visit to Scotland and experience our vibrant culture for themselves."

Arranged’ Marriage, Co-Residence and Female Schooling: A Model with Evidence from India



Arranged’ Marriage, Co-Residence and Female Schooling: A Model with Evidence from India

Issued February 13, 2008
Institute for the Study of Labor
We model the consequences of parental control over choice of wives for sons, for parental incentives to educate daughters, when the marriage market exhibits competitive dowry payments and altruistic but paternalistic parents benefit from having married sons live with them. By choosing uneducated brides, some parents can prevent costly household partition. Paternalistic self-interest consequently generates low levels of female schooling in the steady state equilibrium. State payments to parents for educating daughters fail to raise female schooling levels. Policies (such as housing subsidies) that promote nuclear families, interventions against early marriages, and state support to couples who marry against parental wishes, are however all likely to improve female schooling. We offer evidence from India consistent with our theoretical analysis.

The Billings family had no property holdings on the seacoast. However, they collected several marine views that spoke to their interest in the work of local artists, the characteristic folkways of maritime cultures, and the evocative beauties of wild ocean landscapes.

Harry Chase, the artist of a boating scene in the Netherlands, was a native of Woodstock, and grew up on a village street not far from the Mansion. Edward Moran’s Clam Gatherers was similar in subject and style to the steel genre engravings in the Mansion collection. Many of these were made by German artists of the Dusseldorf School, and ornamented the bedrooms of the Billings children.
