Intermediation and Translation in Transition: transdisciplinary research training group

November 2019 saw the launch of a new research training group at MLU, funded by the Hans Böckler Foundation (HBS), with eight members working on doctoral research projects. The group explores changes in practices and settings of intermediation and translation unfolding in the context of advancing digitalisation, automation and globalisation in the world of work. We aim for a better understanding of intermediation and translation as two modes of dealing with the boundaries of access to knowledge and societal participation.

The studies conducted within the group proceed on a transdisciplinary (educational science, business studies, linguistics, sociology) and empirical basis, continuously conscious of the broader context of societal transformation. Our objective is to cast light, from a relational perspective, on the challenges and limitations of facilitating people’s access to societal participation via intermediation and translation.
