Bloody Sunday will be the topic of a panel discussion on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. at New York University’s Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South (At McDougal Street), NYC.

The event, hosted by NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House, will bring together public faces with firsthand experience of Bloody Sunday, such as Sinn Fein politician and Northern Ireland Education Minister Martin McGuinness, who was the IRA’s second in command in Derry on Jan. 30, 1972, with expert opinions such as those of investigative journalist and author Peter Pringle.

The discussion has been called “Bloody Sunday 1972-2002: Event, Image and Memory.”

The panelists will be: Richard Harvey, legal representative at the Saville Inquiry for the Wray family; Mary Hickman, University of North London and visiting professor, Europe-Australia Institute, Victoria University; Martin McGuinness, MLA, Minister for Education, Northern Ireland; Peter Pringle, investigative journalist and author of “Those Are Real Bullets” (2000); Brian Wallis, chief curator, International Center of Photography, New York; and Trisha Ziff, guest curator of the current ICP exhibition, “Hidden Truths: Bloody Sunday 1972.”
