Lisbon 2018


As we head deeper into the 21st Century, what does it mean to call someone or something ‘evil’? Previously used to describe natural disasters such as the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 or even pandemics such as the Black Death, evil is now used as a popular term by the press and social media to refer to various acts of hatred, violence, terror, brutality and senseless killing.

Despite feeling antiquated and out of place, ‘evil’ continues to enjoy widespread use and retains significant personal resonance and social meaning. The Changing Faces of Evil is an inclusive interdisciplinary project through which we will seek to map the changing faces of evil across history and explore the question: what are the modern evils of the 21st century?
