The SURF/Rose Hills fellowship ($6K) allows UC Berkeley students in certain math, science, and engineering majors (L&S, CNR, COE, C. Chem) to immerse themselves in full-time summer research; independent research for juniors or graduating seniors ; or faculty-initiated research for sophomores or juniors.

Yaul Perez-Stable Husni : Comparative Literature, Creative Writing Minor
Past attempts to define the prose poem as a genre depend on the oppositional status of prose and poetry, thinking then of the prose poem as a space for synthesis. However, because these accounts imagine stable definitions of prose and poetry, specific prose poems can only invoke—and not reconfigure—those definitions. Through literary analysis, I will trace the development of the prose poem in American literature in the twentieth century, with attention to how individual literary texts rework the aforementioned opposition between prose and poetry, and how these texts in turn inform and challenge our concepts of genre.
