IMG_20151120_162846310 On November 20, 2015, members of the Fulbright Commission made a visit to the American Studies Center of the KU Leuven in Antwerp. The occasion was an event hosted in honour of the late Mr. Mil Kinnaer, whose son generously donated Kinnaer’s impressive collection of Civil War books to the Center. Among those attending were prof. dr. Hendrik Kockaert, dean of the KU Leuven Faculty of Arts in Antwerp, and dr. Marion Huibrechts, chair of the American Studies Center.
