NYIT Students

A delegation of 26 students, faculty members, and administrators traveled to Beijing for an NYIT conference on water management and global challenges on Oct. 16. The students were invited to the conference by President Guiliano to benefit from NYIT's experiential approach to American education.

All students were required to keep a conference journal for reflection and analysis before, during, and after the conference. As one student noted in her journal: "This is my first time attending this kind of international conference. Experts from different fields and countries came together to talk about a great problem we face. Communication is an important tool to know the world ... though it has been several days since the conference, I am still excited when we talk about it."

Meet Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D.

Beverly Butcher

In 2009, when Associate Professor Beverly J. Butcher, Ph.D., was employed at a university in northern Florida, she taught courses on multicultural literature and writing as well as the work of female authors in China. It was the latter courses on the writings of Nobel Prize winner Pearl Buck's The Exile and Fighting Angel and Anchee Min's Red Azalea and Empress Orchid that Butcher says invoked her longing to return to China, where she had lived four years previously, in Taiwan and Shanghai. Now, she directs the NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at NUPT and chairs the English department at NYIT's Nanjing campus. Read more.

NYIT-Nanjing Professor Presents Lecture on Myths of the American Market

On Sept. 20, NYIT-Nanjing Associate Professor of Management and Economics James Nolt, Ph.D., gave a presentation to faculty members and students at the NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at NUPT on "The Myth of the Market in Contemporary American Culture." His talk asserted that myths of the market are among the most powerful and prevalent of modern moral and political ideology. Rather than the market as a venue of fairness, efficiency and stability, he presented the perspective of a classical political economy (espoused by philosopher-economists Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and John Stuart Mill), where markets are inherently political battlegrounds of powerful interests.

Nolt received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Chicago. He has served as a Harvard Senior Fellow and a member of the World Policy Institute. He is an expert on international political economies and issues of global security, with a focus on United States-East Asia relations.
