The departmental awards committee selected the essay “Subjectivity and Greece in Hölderlin’s ‘Hälfte des Lebens’” as the winner of this year’s Berkeley Prize for Undergraduate Essays in German Studies.

We congratulate the author Kyungtae Na from New York University on this wonderful success! The winning essay will be considered for publication in our electronic journal TRANSIT, and the winner will be awarded $500. The essay submissions provided us with a good cross-section of undergraduate research in the field.
