Overview and Goals

Research Training Group

The research training group examines new constellations and practices of mediation and translation in the face of transformations of work and knowledge related with digitalisation, automation and globalisation. We scrutinize mediation and translation as social practices which address limitations of participation. Taking relational concepts as a point of departure, we examine the conditions under which these practices enable or inhibit participation. We adopt an interdisciplinary approach that includes educational sciences, business studies, linguistics and sociology.
