Technology and Identity in Young Adult Fiction is not a historical study or a survey of narrative plots, but takes a more conceptual approach that engages with the central ideas of posthumanism: the fragmented nature of posthuman identity, the concept of agency as distributed and collective and the role of embodiment in understandings of selfhood.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Victoria Flanagan's Technology and Identity in Young Adult Fiction offers an engaging exploration of technology in young adult ... fiction, including ideas of identity, embodiment, subjectivity and individual agency in posthuman fiction. ... She writes engagingly, offering insight and her texts connect through this common thread. ... The sum total is a convincingly written, well-argued and fascinating exploration of the use of the posthuman in YA fiction." (Katherine Ford, The British Society of Literature and Science, bsls.ac.uk, January, 2016)
