Alignment Collection is presented as a note book, till now we have produced 4 issues. Each publication is the result of an alignment of two books which were selected by a scientist and a humanities expert. It is a method making pairs which show their individualities and interests.
This project aims to evaluate the relationship between forms of knowledge and the specific languages of the two cultures, science and humanities, using the method of Sequence Alignment (specific to bioinformatics). Visualizing, in the form of a Peer Review, and reflecting John Brockman’s concept of Third Culture.
