Newsletter publication, starting August 2022
Welcome readers, film buffs, writers, artists, students, teachers...thinkers!
The Matterhorn investigates the intersections of literature and art across times, cultures, mediums, and genres. Each week, I look at a new topic through several texts with the aim to gain a better understanding of ourselves and our world.
Through investigating a topic from different artistic angles, we develop intertexts. In the in-between, through comparisons of human artistic responses to a real-world issue, we can approach understanding.
The Matterhorn is the Swiss German name for an iconic peak on the border of Switzerland and Italy; it means “The Peak in the Meadows.” She is like an intertext herself – between two places, cultures, peoples…rising up to create something new, observing new truths.
Anybody who enjoys making connections through the arts and learning from literature is welcome to join us.
Besides the weekly investigated topic, I send you additional ideas about internationalism, writing, and reading as well as personal observations and ideas from guests. You can subscribe to the newsletter for free, but for the cost of a coffee a month, you can help this project to grow and get the full experience. Paid subscriptions include access to discussion threads and extra content.
Weekly Posts by Concept
My newsletter platform doesn't allow for organized content maintenance, so here you can browse the free weekly posts by concept. For IB DP teachers, these include concepts from your courses. I will update these as much as possible, but the latest updates are all on my Substack page. In these early stages, I have also included the titles of some unposted material as a brief preview.
