Join the ACRL Delaware Valley Chapter in discussing impressions, takeaways, and insights from Change the Subject, a documentary chronicling how a group of Dartmouth Latinx students were spurred to political advocacy through their experiences with Library of Congress subject headings about people who are undocumented.
Change the Subject is available freely until December 19th, 2020 from PBS here: https://www.pbs.org/video/change-the-subject-23nbpj/
Please note, this is not a screening of the documentary and attendees are encouraged to watch it beforehand.
The free event — held virtually via Zoom — will include a panel discussion with three of the documentary’s creators: activist and former Dartmouth student Melissa Pedilla, librarian Jill Baron, and scholar and mentor Dr. Lourdes Gutíerrez Nájera, followed by a Q+A and discussion.
This event is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.
Support is also provided by the College and Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association. http://crdpala.org/
