Change the Subject Screening & Panel
January 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
TRLN is hosting a screening of Change the Subject scheduled for January 30, 2020, from 2:00-4:00pm at Carolina Theatre, Cinema One in downtown Durham. The screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. To express your interest in attending, please complete the registration form.
Change the Subject is a documentary film that tells the story of a group of college students who, from their first days at Dartmouth College, were committed to advancing and promoting the rights and dignity of undocumented peoples. In partnership with staff at Dartmouth, these students – now alumni – produced a film to capture their singular effort at confronting an instance of anti-immigrant sentiment in their library catalog. Their advocacy took them all the way from Baker-Berry Library to the halls of Congress, showing how an instance of campus activism entered the national spotlight, and how a cataloging term became a flashpoint in the immigration debate on Capitol Hill.
After the film screening, a panel discussion with local colleagues will be held:
- Moderator, Monica Figueroa (UNC-Chapel Hill), Music Cataloging Librarian
Maria Gonzalez (Student Action with Farmworkers), Into the Fields, Program Coordinator
Maggie Dickson (Duke), Metadata Architect
- Christina Manzella (Duke), Monographs Description Librarian
Meg McMahon (UNC), SILS student
