Introducing our registration team

We are looking forward to welcoming you to UCD on July 7th.

Jason O’Toole (UCD), Julia O’Connell (TCD) and Mark Ronan (UCD) will be helping out during the Conference. I thought it might be useful to introduce each of them to you ahead of the conference.

His work investigates whether early modern sexuality fragments into sanctioned procreation through marriage, an outcome of sexual touch, and proscribed acts of sexual pleasure for recreation. Julia
