The End of Austin is a digital humanities project that explores urban identity in Austin, Texas. Its goal is to bring together different kinds of voices—academic, artistic, activist—to start a conversation about life in the fastest growing city in the US.
The End of Austin project, focusing on Austin’s shifting identity, includes original writing, photos, video, art, music—anything that illuminates how things are changing, ending, expiring, or collapsing in the midst of our growth-obsessed sunbelt burg. It is edited by Randy Lewis and affiliated with the Department of American Studies at UT. Check out the department’s amazing blog, AMS::ATX, while you’re at it.
