This episode is our first in a series of episodes about “Future Landscapes.” In the Future Landscapes Series, we invite starters and planters to begin to consider not only “what is” going on in our contexts but where our lives might be heading. In this episode, we explore the world of government and corporate surveillance. Professor David Lyon, our guide, invites us to consider how Christians might begin to navigate a world in which we are being watched.

David Lyon’s research, writing, and teaching interests revolve around major social transformations in the modern world. Questions of the information society, globalization, secularization, surveillance, and debates over “post-” and “digital” modernity feature prominently in his work.
