Details of Hapshepsut's life missing from Egyptian history
Utica, NY (10/08/2013)- Those interested in history can get a glimpse into the hierarchy of ancient Egypt, including some interesting facts on Hatshepsut, a Middle Kingdom Pharoah.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9, the Utica College history brown bag lunch lecture features Claire Fitzgerald, with her lecture, “The Evil Stepmother on the Throne: The Reign of Hatshepsut and its Historiography.” Fitzgerald earned her doctorate in art history from Emory University.
Perhaps most surprising, Hapshepsut was a woman.
The lecture will take place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Hubbard Hall, room 202. It is free and open to the public.
The history brown bag lunch lecture series hosts talks on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:30 p.m. during the academic year. Attendees are asked to bring their own lunch, but drinks will be provided.
For more information on the history lunch lecture, contact David Wittner, professor and chair of history, at email@example.com.

Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
