How can Young Adult Literature Work as a Form of Bystander Intervention?
Two Education and Human Development professors co-published an article on the role of young adult literature in bystander intervention against sexual violence.
Education and Human Development faculty, Drs. Kathleen Colantonio-Yurko and Cody Miller, along with Dr. Brittany Adams (SUNY Cortland), and Shelby Boehm (PhD candidate at the University of Florida) published an article on the role of young adult literature in bystander intervention against sexual violence in The ALAN Review.
Their article, “Beyond Perpetrators, Victims, and Survivors: Young Adult Literature as Bystander Intervention Education” outlines how realistic young adult fiction can support students’ intervening behavior and activism against sexual assault and violence.
