FILM SERIES:  "Northern Ireland and the Troubles" at 3:15 p.m., Friday, Feb. 2, in 201 Newton Hall. On January 30, 1972, one of the most notorious episodes in the turbulent history of Northern Ireland occurred in the city of Londonderry.  In the midst of a march to protest the British government's suspension of due process rights for suspected Irish  Republican Army supporters, British soldiers fired on protestors and  killed 13 civilians.  Although controversy surrounds the events of  "Bloody Sunday", it is universally recognized as a key date in the history of Northern Ireland. Coinciding with the 35th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, this February, eight Geneseo students will be present a series on the history of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland.  These students spent the fall 2006 semester participating in a directed reading group on the Troubles, exploring firsthand accounts and scholarly works on sectarian conflict and the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland.  On Friday, February 2, the students will present a 90-minute introduction to the history of Northern Ireland and the Troubles, followed by screenings of three films about the Troubles on subsequent Friday afternoons (a complete schedule and summary of the films follows).  A short student presentation outlining the historical context will precede each film and there will be time for discussion at the end of the sessions. For more information, contact Joe Cope at cope@geneseo.edu.
