Dr John Turner was one of the foremost historians in the Hunter Valley with a keen interest in local convict history.

As a former history lecturer at the University of Newcastle and WEA Hunter, the annual John Turner Memorial Lecture was established as a joint initiative of the institutions to honour his memory. 

You are invited to join guest speaker Dr Julie McIntyre on Thursday 15 May for enlightening look at the history of wine in the Hunter region - Australia's oldest continually producing wine region.

Dr McIntyre is a lecturer in history and member of the Wine Studies Research Network at the University of Newcastle. She has also taught at the Universities of Sydney and NSW. Dr McIntyre has published widely on wine in colonial history across themes of Aboriginal-settler relations, migration, transnational exchange and cultural taste.
