Calvin Conference next year in Geneva

From the website of the Calvin Conference 2009 (May 24-27):

"The major scholarly event of the 'Calvin year' 2009 in Geneva, this conference will attempt to take the full measure of John Calvin's historical importance by exploring the extent and limits of his influence across the generations and around the world, from his lifetime until today, in the domains of theology, politics, culture, and social life. Contributions are invited from specialists in any field of specialization on any topic that directly engages with Calvin's real or putative influence, during his lifetime or during the generations following his death.

Each day of the conference will feature both large plenary sessions and numerous smaller panels. Special events are also planned.

Confirmed participants include Irena Backus, Emidio Campi, Olivier Christin, Denis Crouzet, John de Gruchy, André Encrevé, Max Engammare, F.W. Graf, Mark Greengrass, Berndt Hamm, Harro Höpfl, Diarmaid MacCulloch, George M. Marsden, Olivier Millet, Richard Muller, William Naphy, Heinz Schilling, Cornelis van der Kooi, Ernestine van der Wall, Avihu Zakai."
