For several years, RIC graduate students have organized an annual conference that features presentations by graduate students from other universities in the United States and around the world, as well as panels and keynotes by local activists and high-profile academics. In 2020, the conference had been planned prior to the Covid-19 lockdown, which necessitated its cancellation. No 2021 conference could be planned. RIC hopes that its annual conference schedule will resume in the future. Information about recent past conferences is below.
