ABSTRACT

In the process of realizing "Chinese dream", cultural confidence is a key factor in encouraging Chinese students to make contributions to the construction of their motherland. As compulsory courses for English majors in China, English and American Literature courses are usually regarded as a window for Chinese students to know the western civilization, but in the new era of building the Socialism with Chinese Characteristics, cultivation of Chinese students' confidence of their own culture becomes equally important as cross-cultural competence does. This paper explores some possibilities from a comparative perspective to cater to the need of cultivation of cultural confidence in foreign literature course.
