No giggling down the back.
The 32nd Irish Conference of Historians will take place at University College Cork this week.
This year’s theme? ‘Sex, Sexuality and Reproduction: historical perspectives’.
Panelists from all over the world will address topics relating to the history of sex, sexuality and reproduction, in Ireland and globally, from antiquity to the 1990s – and it’s guaranteed to be a fascinating few days.
Renowned feminist-socialist historian Sheila Rowbotham will be speaking on New Women and Free Love in nineteenth-century Britain and America, while the pioneering historian of sexuality, Jeffrey Weeks, will be speaking about sexual history.
Leading expert on medieval sexuality, Ruth M. Karras, will offer a unique insight into male adultery and repentance in the Middle Ages and the author of the acclaimed ‘Impure Thoughts: sexuality, Catholicism and literature in Twentieth-Century Ireland’, Michael G. Cronin, will be addressing the theme of his book.
