This should work:

  {
    string temp = "fileNewMenuItem_Click";
    EventHandler handler = (EventHandler)Delegate.CreateDelegate(typeof(EventHandler), this, temp);

    handler(null, null);
  }

  void fileNewMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
  }

if fileNewMenuItem_Click is a static method use,

  EventHandler handler = (EventHandler)Delegate.CreateDelegate(typeof(EventHandler), typeof(CLASS_NAME), temp);
