Neal Stephenson tells an audience at Gresham College how and why genres don't exist as they did, say, 50 years ago. If you have time for it (or even if you don't), it's a great lecture about the relationship between romance and violence, how science fiction became speculative fiction, and the bifurcation of mainstream and marginalized story-telling.
