Author: WANG Hai, Post-doctoral fellow, University of Glasgow

 

Abstract:

The process of being canonized is also a process of being disciplined. However, the reason why some texts are canonized is that those texts are able to provide us with abundant potentialities to liberate us from all kinds of identities and deconstruct the discipline caused by canonization. One important means of deconstruction is the act of “translation” that can constantly generate differences.

 

Keywords:

Canon; identity; difference; translation
