Questioning the existence of culture within EFL pedagogy has been an issue of identity of the Indonesian pedagogical practitioner. The chaotic perception upon the choice of implementing English culture or the local culture raises
plenitude of dialogues among these pedagogical practitioner as well as researchers in Indonesia. This paper specifically embraced English literature classrooms as the setting of the dialogue between local culture and English literary texts and how it is represented by the instructors. Approaching the study qualitatively, this paper gained the results through observation, interviews, and text analysis. The data were then analyzed based on the theory of culture by Hofstede and the theory of literary competence by Spiro. The results showed that local culture was represented through the level of behavior/artifacts and the level of values/norms. The results also showed that the instructors’ literary competence becomes the channel of their
local culture and provided the possibility of transference of local culture within the process of the teaching-learning process of English literature. This paper, thus,
suggested more comprehensive studies on the curricular application of the local culture within literary pedagogy in EFL settings.
