“Evil” is a word with many meanings, a broad concept with a definition made increasingly vague by our evolving literary landscape. In her upcoming study, Secondary Education PhD candidate Cathryn van Kessel intends to seek out the true meaning of evil by researching the way it’s understood by teens. Taking into account the wide range of cultural and personal influences that can shape an individual’s understanding of morality, van Kessel hopes to arrive at a stronger understanding of what it truly means to be evil.
