Dear Director of Graduate Studies in English,
On behalf of the Intermountain Graduate Conference committee, I am writing
to inform you of very exciting news. The 4th annual Intermountain Graduate
Conference, “Remapping Intellectual Spaces,” to take place in Logan, Utah
at Utah State University (USU), April 4, 2008 has announced a new keynote
speaker: Teresa Jordan, nationally recognized Western writer and author of
the acclaimed memoir, Riding the White Horse Home and the classic study of
women on ranches and in the rodeo, Cowgirls: Women of the American West.
Artist, historian, producer of documentaries and radio programs, and award-
winning writer, Jordan will be talking about her new book, titled My
Argentinean Shrink and Other Midlife Adventures in Spanish, which
considers the challenges of learning a second language at midlife.
Our deadline is fast approaching and we wanted to extend a special
invitation to your students to participate in this conference. The
Conference Committee invites abstracts from graduate students in the
Humanities. We welcome scholarly or creative papers on a wide range of

claims in pop culture to experimental multi-genre works of creative
writing. ALL abstracts will be considered. Papers may be submitted
individually, but panel submissions are also encouraged. Abstracts must be
