Symposia and Colloquia

The annual Graduate Certificate Colloquium is only one of any number of events the Center will sponsor or co-sponsor annually. Partnering with other Rice Centers, such as the Humanities Research Center, and with organizations outside the University, the Center has begun to mount lectures, conferences, symposia, and the like related to its mission.
