Please join us for a panel discussion on the documentary film Change the Subject, a 2019 documentary that tells the story of a group of students at Dartmouth College, whose singular effort at confronting anti-immigrant sentiment in their library catalog took them all the way from Baker-Berry Library to the halls of Congress. Change the Subject shows 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. Our panelists will discuss the contexts shown in the film and the possible collaborations between students and professionals to advance social change. ASL interpretation will be provided.
The panel discussion will be held on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 4-5 p.m.
