Kick off Women’s History Month with Kenneth Garrett, ancient civilization expert and award-winning National Geographic photographer, for a lecture featuring some of the most powerful women of ancient Egypt. Using his stunning photographs, Kenneth will introduce you to Neithhotep, who was considered the first ruling queen, as well as Nefertari, Nefertiti, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra VII, who was the last of the female pharaohs. You’ll travel from 3200 BCE through 12 BCE to discover how these extraordinary “Queens of Egypt” lived in a world dominated by men.
Your online lecture will take place live over the course of 1-2 hours. All times are listed in the EASTERN time zone. If you live in a different time zone, please adjust your schedule accordingly. This live online experience uses Zoom Webinar, an easy-to-use web video service that includes closed captioning. All you need is an Internet connection and your computer. You will receive a confirmation email when you enroll, and a reminder email one week and one day before, as well as the morning of the event with a link and instructions on how to tune in. You will not be pictured on screen during the lecture, but you will have the opportunity to ask the instructor live questions using the Q&A box.
