The "Edgy Women" series concludes with a presentation by guest lecturer Dale Hoak.
Randolph-Macon College will host guest lecturer Dale Hoak for the latest installment
of its “Edgy Women” series on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. Hoak will present “Anne
Boleyn: Queen of Hearts” at 7:00 p.m. in the Topping Room (212) in Old Chapel.
This event is free and open to the public.
Henry VIII changed the religion of a nation in order to marry Anne Boleyn, the most
fascinating and controversial of his six wives. Hoak will explain why the story
of Anne Boleyn's rise and fall continues to captivate us more than five centuries
after her tragic execution.
Hoak is professor emeritus of history at William and Mary. He has been a guest lecturer
at the Smithsonian Institute on Henry VIII and his six wives.
This lecture is sponsored by R-MC’s First-Year Experience
program, the Honors Program, and the departments
art history, sociology,
women’s studies and political science.
In addition, it is sponsored by the Committee on Assemblies and Special Events (CASE).
