The genre of a Festschrift, or celebratory publication, is widely used in academia as a tribute to a scholar on the occasion of his or her anniversary. The anthropological Festschrift is of particular interest to its professional audience because it presents the anthropologist not only from a professional perspective, but also from a personal one, thus interconnecting personal and academic realities. Such celebratory collections are usually published in book form or as journal issues. This Festschrift is published online, as a website that honors Levon Abrahamian, the director of the Department of Contemporary Ethnology at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography of the Armenian Academy of Sciences.
