Change the Subject Screening & Panel

Thursday, January 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join TRLN for a screening of Change the Subject on January 30, 2020, from 2:00-4:00pm at Carolina Theatre, Cinema One in downtown Durham. To express your interest in attending, please complete the registration form. Free popcorn included!

About the Film

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.

Panel Discussion and Q&A

After the film screening, a panel discussion and Q&A with local colleagues will be held. Panelists include:

  • 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
