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.

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
