Megan Isaac, associate professor of English, has published an article in the journal Children's Literature in Education.
In the article entitled, “Surveillance as a Topic of Study in the Work of E. Lockhart and Cory Doctorow," Isaac analyzes the strategies presented in young adult literature for investigating, questioning and responding to the growing forms of surveillance typical in the lives of young adults in the United States. She argues that unlike the authors of many dystopian novels, the contemporary realism of Lockhart and Doctorow showcases models that invite readers to interact with and manage surveillance in order to present the possibility of sustaining agency even in a world where being the object of surveillance is inescapable.
