The officers of the Idaho State University English Graduate Student Association invite you to join us for the 8th annual Inter-mountain Graduate Conference at Idaho State University, March 1-2, 2013. The primary theme for this conference is "Growth." Academia is, after all, about growth. We swell with knowledge and experience as we move through the steps from undergraduates to scholars in the field. The discipline grows with us as we contribute our own research. As graduate students we are uniquely involved in the growth of the discipline as we grow ourselves. How are we as graduate students contributing to the growth of the discipline? How has your research contributed to the growth of a specific focus? What new and exciting focus is on the horizon? How has the discipline itself grown in recent years? In addition, we welcome presentations by graduate students on all areas of literature, languages, film, composition, pedagogy, creative writing, and professional writing. Proposals may interpret the EGSA theme broadly.

This conference is open to graduate students in English and related fields. We are open to panel submissions as well as individual paper submissions. We would also like to invite undergraduate students to submit a proposal, though we ask that you also submit a recommendation letter from an instructor along with your proposal. Please go to (under construction) or email the conference coordinators at for more information.

Please send proposals of no more than 250 words, a working title, recommendation letter if required, and contact information including name, school, degree level, and email address to by December 15th 2012.
