Why Is It Difficult to Change Supervisor in China?： A Critical Discourse Analysis of A Professor's Interview
Supervisor changing is not a special affair that iust happens in Chinese university，but the situation it faces in Chinese context shows our own characteristics. This ^little accident” reflects the problems in the Chinese university reform and development，pointing to the institution and culture，which deserves deep thought. The article used the method of critical discourse analysis and analyzed the interview script of “why is it difficult to change supervisor in China?”，aiming at revealing the explanative subject of the whole script. Based on this，the author then conducted a deep text analysis，and finally presented the structure of different discourses. According to the analysis，the reason why the professor viewed supervi- sor changing as an “accident” in China was that she considered whether a professor had his/her own student or not was a symbol of status and status is very important to them. The “status” referred by the interviewee has three meanings and in most cases tt referred to social status. This kind of traditional cultural discourse focusing on the status and relationship lies at the top of the discourse structure. In a certain sense，tt s the traditional cultural discourse that facilitates the higher education management discourse. These two discourses squeeze the space of talent cultivating discourse，which makes the professors can only consider “recruiting and teaching the talented students all over the world” as a dream that can hardly come true.
