IU Cinema screens Change the Subject
You may remember that the IU Libraries Diversity Committee screened Change the Subject (2019) (trailer) last year for library staff. Now the film is being shown as part of the IU Cinema’s Creative Collaboration series. Our own Luis González has kindly agreed to introduce the film and moderate a post-screening Q&A with one of the students featured in the film Óscar Rubén Cornejo Cásares (now a graduate student in sociology at Northwestern). The IU Libraries, Media School, La Casa, and Department of Information and Library Science have provided financial support for this screening and Q&A.
As a reminder, Change the Subject “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.”
The virtual screening and Q&A will be on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 7:00 PM.
