In recognition of the distinguished scholar J. Hillis Miller's long service to the journal as an advisory editor and author, Genre has reprinted a transcript of a symposium to conclude the conference “Contemporary Genre Theory and the Yale School.” The conference was held at the University of Oklahoma in 1984. Panelists Barbara Johnson, Louis Mackey, and J. Hillis Miller comment on work presented at the conference over the previous two days and respond to questions from the audience. Much of the discussion focuses on an appraisal of the differences between deconstructive and Marxist approaches within the discipline of literary studies.
