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 dwittne@utica.edu.
