Throughout history, powerful women have been called many things — witches, regents and seductresses. But there was a time in the ancient world when at least one was called “king.” Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, will discuss strong female leaders whose power was compromised from the start. Thursday, Aug. 30, 7:30 p.m., Weis Center Tickets: 570-577-1000 or Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice
