Festschriften

  • Mary E. Hunt

Abstract

Festschriften are books written in honor of a colleague, often on the occasion of her/his sixty-fifth or seventieth birthday, or upon retirement. There are other ways to lift up the importance of a colleague’s work—for example, with a conference, a special section of a journal, an art project, or the like. However, the most common academic model is a collaborative book that includes an essay about the person and her/his work, or essays on themes related to or sparked by the colleague’s endeavors.
