Dear Reader:

Thank you for setting some time aside to peruse the second annual edition of The King’s Undergraduate Research Journal. The 2018 volume includes eight articles that represent several departments and programs:  Criminology, English, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Justice and Peace, and Thanatology. These papers collectively demonstrate some of the best analytic work produced by King’s students, having been vetted by faculty members and journal staff alike.

Socrates commented, “There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.” The reader will appreciate that the four women and four men who have produced the reports contained herein have committed firmly to that sacred objective, i.e., the indefatigable quest to pursue knowledge wherever the road might lead. Whether or not one agrees fully with their conclusions, the authors’ analyses and reflections on many facets of the human condition are worthy of serious consideration. In a “post-truth” world dominated by “alternative facts” and “fake news,” we are reminded by these excellent research papers that scientia ipsa potential est.
