LECTURE AND BOOK SIGNING Women and Power in the Ancient World

Egyptologist Kara Cooney returns to Albany to discuss her new book on Hatshepsut!

Kara Cooney, Associate Professor, Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA

In conjunction with the publication of her new book. The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut's Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt, Cooney will draw from the latest field research to fill the gaps in what we know about Hatshepsut- the longest reigning female pharoah- and the obstacles that faced women who sought power and prestige in a society that equated authority with masculinity.
