Join the University of Newcastle for a talk by University of Sydney PhD candidate, Tamsin O’Connor, on the bad neighbours of early nineteenth century Newcastle. Using the penal station as a microcosm for the wider colony, her paper will explore how the exiles of Newcastle looked to the sea to keep up their neighbourly ties, including replicating the illegal trading patterns they had known in Europe.
