About this Event

This autumn the US is one of the hotspots that the whole world is watching! That is why, we are organizing a special webinar for you - our US based but also worldwide alumni. On 21st October meet the Head of the Alumni Community in New York, Patrick van Rosendaal and his special guests!

Patrick will be joined by our Dean, Marion Debruyne and Björn Soenens (Journalist, VRT’s US correspondent and book author), who will have an in-depth discussion about the relevant topics of the moment in the States.

Björn will join us online from Arizona where he is reporting on the building of the wall. He will share his insights on the current state of affairs in the United States, from the upcoming elections to the deepening complexities of the American society.

He will also talk about his recently published book - The length of an ocean, where he shares the stories of ordinary Americans, recording their challenges, struggles and fight against injustice.

Don’t miss out on this interesting webinar and register now! The first 20 alumni who register for this webinar will get a free copy of Björn Soenens’ book in Dutch - De lengte van een oceaan! You can find out more about it here.
