The End of Austin, a digital humanities project housed in the UT Department of American Studies, recently published “Sheltering in a Weird Place: Notes from Quarantined Austin.” The collection features reflections on quarantine from writers throughout Austin, including several UT AMS graduate students, undergraduates, and faculty.

“They’re like dispatches from a surreal battlefield,” TEOA editor Randy Lewis writes, “people cooped up, waiting, goofing off, scared out of their minds, lonely, going broke, thwarted, cautiously optimistic, and a thousand other feelings that are bubbling up in neighborhoods under the violet crown.”
