Change the Subject: Movie Viewing & Discussion

January 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

No human being is illegal. When Dartmouth College students challenged anti-immigrant language in the Library of Congress, their activism sparked a movement–and a cataloging term became a flashpoint in the immigration debate on Capitol Hill. Watch this film and learn why “words are also actions.” The Change the Subject documentary has been screened at over one hundred universities and libraries in the United States and around the world, and has inspired library workers to address the ways that systemic racism continues to pervade institutions, particularly in controlled vocabularies.

Program: Sunday, January 23, 2022, 2:00-4:00, via Zoom.


Change the Subject (2019), directed by Jill E. Baron and Sawyer Broadley.

Join us for a screening of the 54-minute film followed by a discussion with the film’s co-director Jill E. Baron, a research and learning librarian for humanities and social sciences at Dartmouth University.
