This study focuses on exploring the ideological influences in literature studies in neoliberal China. The exploration of ideological impacts will be discussed through looking at the theoretical discourse and empirical discourse. The theoretical discourse which will be developed in this study based on the theory of ideology and the theory of neoliberalism. There will be many other theoretical themes discussed in study, but all of them are going to serve the discourse about ideology and neoliberalism. The discourse about the theory of ideology and theory of neoliberalism intends to provide the background and theoretical framework for the empirical discourse. The empirical discourse is concentrated in the literature materials which come from the high school colloquiums in China. Those materials will be provided in different themes, in order to extend the discussions about the existed ideologies in literature studies. Through the empirical discourse about literature studies, study will be able to show various types of different ideological themes and how they work within the context of neoliberal China after economic reform in 1978. Once all sorts of ideological themes in literature studies are depicted, this study will pay attention to the philosophical themes in order to discuss how the philosophical themes influence the society and individuals in their everyday lives. Those philosophical discussions will be derived from the empirical discourse which is concentrated in literature studies.
