The St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition and Culture (NYI) is an advanced study program organized every July in St. Petersburg, Russia.
NYI 18 will be held in the virtual sky, as V-NYI, July 20-31, 2020.
Participants take mini-courses with international scholars in a range of fields, especially those that do not fall neatly into traditional discipline areas. 2020 will be the 18th year of NYI. Since 2003, over 1000 participants from 55 countries and over 60 Russian Federation cities have received certificates for completing the NYI Summer Seminar Program.
Participants create a program design unique to their own interests, choosing 4 or 5 seminars from among the following fields
Generative Linguistics (Syntax, Semantics, Morphology, Phonology)
Critical Cultural and Media Studies
Media, Film, and Politics
Literature & Performance Studies
NYI believes that traditional academic boundaries inadvertently prevent young intellectuals from engaging many important areas of modern inquiry which do not fall neatly into disciplinary frames, including the cognitive sciences, which study the workings of the human mind, and critical cultural studies, which concentrate on comparative aspects of human societies. NYI is proud to have gathered an international group of faculty who are not only specialists in their fields, but also have experience working in intercultural environments.
NYI would like to express its eternal gratitude to our supporters and partners:
• The Herzen State Pedagogical University
• Stony Brook University
• as well as:
