Comparative Literature and World Literature in an Age of Trans-cultural Dialogue
It is commonly acknowledged by the history of any discipline that its border is never unchanging, but always in a constant process of birth, evolution, integration and growth. And there has never been any discipline whatsoever in human history that possesses an everlastingly stable pattern of academic research. This is also true for the discipline of ‘Comparative Literature and World Literature’ in China, whose development needs to go beyond the disciplinary concept of the so-called Euro-centrism for the purpose of constructing a new ecology of world literature in an age of transcultural dialogue. In this sense, the accumulated experience and the pursuit of academic value conducted during the development of world literature in China may, to some extent, serve as a useful reference to the development of a global world literature.
