Genre is a construct that crosses disciplinary, national, methodological, conceptual, and pedagogical borders. The aim of "Genre across Borders" (GXB) is to advance genre theory and research by helping scholars and students cross these borders. The site combines two primary functions:
- as a reference guide to scholarship in the many fields of genre study
