简·奥斯汀的文学圈 Jane Austen's literary circle

国际扫盲日

《傲慢与偏见》的作者简·奥斯汀是世界知名的作家之一,一年一度的文化盛事简·奥斯汀节就是为了纪念这位伟大的女作家而举办的。1801年至1806年间,简·奥斯汀居住于英国巴斯,因此这个节日就在此举行。今年的简·奥斯汀节于9月8日拉开帷幕(这一天恰好也是国际扫盲日),届时,人们会穿着18世纪的英国服装在巴斯的街道上游行。

自1967年以来,每年庆祝一次的国际扫盲日不仅仅是为了纪念文学,更是为了动员世界各国以及相关国际机构重视文盲现象,提高全球的识字率与教育质量。今年的国际扫盲日的挑战是“促进正在转型的世界的扫盲:为可持续和平社会奠定基础”,届时一场全球会议将在法国巴黎举行,联合国教科文组织还将颁发国际扫盲奖。

International Literacy Day

Jane Austen, author of 'Pride and Prejudice,' is one of the best-known writers in English literature, so it's not a surprise that there are multiple festivals honoring her legacy. The largest is held here, in the English city of Bath, where Austen lived from 1801 to 1806. On September 8, International Literacy Day, the city begins its annual 10-day Jane Austen Festival with hundreds of Austen fans walking the streets dressed in costumes from Britain's Regency era, in the early 19th century.

International Literacy Day has been celebrated since 1967 and aims to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals and society. A global conference is held in Paris, France, including the awards ceremony of UNESCO's International Literacy Prizes.
