It is assumed that the dictation will assess the ethnographic literacy level of Russians, their knowledge of the peoples living in the country, as well as draw attention to ethnography as a science, which occupies an important place in the harmonization of interethnic relations.
Participants will take 30 tasks, devoted to the culture, traditions and languages of the peoples of Russia. The total amount of points for the correct execution of all tasks is 100.
The dictation can be taken by anyone aged 15 and above.
The action will take place in the Penza Lermontov Regional Library and in building No. 11 of the Penza State University.
For those who will not be able to test their knowledge in there, the website of the “Big Ethnographic Dictation” provides an online version that starts at 13.00.
Dictation results will be announced in the National Unity Day celebrated on November 4.
Based on the regional results of the All-Russian knowledge test, they will make recommendations for changes in the educational program on ethnography.
