Calvin and Hobbes - international symposium

When I first saw the announcement for the Calvin and Hobbes symposium organised by the French Protestant Faculty of Theology in Paris I had to do a bit of a double take. It is about looking at links between the thought of the English philosopher and the French reformer and lloks very interesting.

However when I first saw it, in my rather uncouth way I thought it was about the cartoon characters Calvin and Hobbes. theyare not so well known in France but I would have thought that would have made for a really interesting comparison! Perhaps someone will present a paper about that!
