Hume To Speak

Nobel Peace Prize winner and Visiting Professor of Irish Studies John Hume will update the University community on the Irish peace process in a public lecture on Thursday, March 18 at 2 p.m. in Gasson 100.

Hume, who received an honorary degree and addressed the graduates at BC's 1995 Commencement Exercises, has visited the campus each spring for the past three years as a visiting professor. Last year, Hume and David Trimble were named co-winners of the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to end the violent conflict in Northern Ireland.

Irish Studies Associate Director Robert Savage Jr. said Hume will discuss the history of the Northern Ireland "Troubles" at his March 18 lecture, as well as the current status of the peace process. He will answer questions from audience members, Savage added.
