Reflections on Interdisciplinary Studies of Comparative Literature
ZHANG Jun-ping;LI Li;College of Foreign Languages,Jiangnan University;
Since the first time Interdisciplinary Study was put forward by H. Remark,the famous American scholar of comparative literature,it has been a controversial topic,although it brought in new study perspectives and opened up new realms. But in many respects it has been subject to academic dispute. Firstly,it makes the discipline boundaries indistinct and leads comparative literature into infinite expansion. Secondly,as can be seen from the existing researches in interdisciplinary study,many researchers fail to stick to "literariness"or "comparability",and literary texts degenerated to be research data for other disciplines. Lastly and the most importantly,some so-called"interdisciplinary studies"only care about"crossing disciplines"while ignoring the other"four crosses"emphasized by comparative literature,i. e. crossing national boundaries,crossing languages,crossing cultures or crossing civilizations.
