      讲座摘要: The traditional conception of genre considers genres as a classification system of texts. While such a system that emphasizes the textual forms of genres may still have value in genre studies, it has been suggested that any genre cannot be fully understood without examining its rhetorical situation (writers, readers, purposes, settings) from which the genre developed. This talk, by connecting theories of rhetoric to genre studies, will explain why genres have been viewed as rhetorical and social actions in response to recurrent rhetorical situations in North America. This talk will end by discussing how this new conception of genre has been used in writing classrooms in the United States and how this new conception can also provide pedagogical insights for writing teachers of English in China.
