Hey 2020 Cafe-ers and Lurkers,
I was a 2019 applicant and am currently attending UT Austin.
I haven’t been super active since my season, so I apologize for not being up to date on the conversations/threads so far. That said, I wanted to make a plug for people interested in studying Af-Am/African diaspora lit. In my experience, I feel like UT isn’t a place people immediately think of as having strengths in those areas, but I am really happy with the resources I’ve found here and wanted to share that! So if anyone has questions or is slightly interested, feel free to DM me—I’m happy to answer questions, chat, or exchange materials.
Godspeed to everyone working on getting their applications in!
