Abstract

Traditionally, the notion of genre has been restricted in scope to literary pieces categorized by style or subject matter – satire, tragedy, drama, and short stories, to name just a few. However, genre can be extended far beyond literature to include any socially or culturally accepted form of communication, whether that be spoken or written, and anything from a greeting card to a eulogy to a travel brochure can be considered its own genre. This presentation explores a common genre - food recipes - and analyzes it from the inside out, elucidating commonly overlooked genre conventions and demonstrating the pedagogical implications of genre theory in the classroom.
