Since its incorporation into the discipline of foreign languages and literature, country-and-area studies has aroused more concerns in view of new liberal arts. It is worthwhile to consider such issues as how to adjust the relationship between foreign literature research and country-and-area studies, and what are the ways to promote the latter so as to further mutual development. Interdisciplinary research serves as the basis for their integration while each holds its respective research dimensions. As foreign literature research expands to international issues, it is necessary to maintain its original disciplinary principles. Through the relevant practice, it is argued that researchers, by a proper integration of foreign literature studies and country-and-area studies, can be better problem-oriented in their contribution to the development of new liberal arts.

Key words: Foreign Literature Studies, Country-and-area Studies, New Liberal Arts
