NYI was founded in 2003 as a joint project between the State University of New York at Stony Brook and St. Petersburg State University to further the study of interdisciplinary education in the transnational classroom. NYI’s primary goal is to bring together world-famous scholars in under-represented fields of inquiry to facilitate high-level academic discussions in the most modern interdisciplinary fields such as Critical Cultural Studies, Media Studies, Cognitive Studies and others. NYI 2014 will be the 12th year of NYI.
Since its founding in 2003, NYI has acquired a reputation as the leading summer Institute of its kind in Europe and beyond. More than 1000 students have participated from throughout the Russian Federation (with over 45 Russian cities represented among past NYI cities) as well as from more than 35 countries.
The NYI program is unique in its focus on issues that do not easily fall within traditional discipline boundaries and as such are not always represented in the academic programs of many universities. The informal western atmosphere promotes discussion and analysis of interdisciplinary themes and research in such fields as critical cultural studies, media/film studies, psychology, cognitive science, philosophy and others.
