an exploration of urban identity in the middle of Texas
Welcome to The End of Austin. We just published a giant summer 2016 issue — 21 new pieces on Austin now — and will be adding new pieces throughout the fall.
For those who are new to our project, The End of Austin is an award-winning digital humanities project that explores urban identity in Austin, Texas. Our 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. If you have something to say about Austin’s shifting identity, please let us know. We’re interested in 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. With readers from over 100 nations, TEOA is reaching a growing global audience interested in life under the violet crown.
