Berkeley Folklore Graduates Win Prizes

Two Berkeley Folklore graduate students won top prizes for their writing this year:

Tracy Brannstrom won the 2018 Jeanne P. Steager Memorial Prize in Folklore, awarded annually to a student who has made an outstanding contribution in folklore during the academic year.

Yasmin Golan won the 2018 Joan Lee Yang Memorial Poetry Prize, awarded to the best poem or group of poems by a graduate student at Berkeley. 

In addition, several Berkeley Folklore graduate students will also be presenting their original research at the Western States Folklore Society conference in Los Angeles in April 2018. 

Congratulations to all our presenters and winners.
