WOD – Festschrift / Gedenkschrift

My brain wasn’t working yesterday so I used Sam’s.

In academia, a Festschrift (/ˈfɛstˌʃrɪft/; plural, Festschriften, /ˈfɛstˌʃrɪf.tən/) is a book honouring a respected academic presented during their lifetime.

The term, borrowed from German, could be translated as celebration publication. A comparable book presented posthumously is called a Gedenkschrift memorial publication.

Thanks Sam.
