We are exploring the crossroads of Migration and Technology

Translocal Lives offers a dedicated space for in-depth investigations into how technology intersects with migration. Through research, education, and practical projects spanning diverse settings, we delve into the complexities and contradictions of technology adoption by migrants. Our aim is to foster a nuanced understanding of the challenges posed by technology, as well as the innovative solutions that technological advancements can bring to the complex experiences and narratives of human mobility. By providing an inclusive platform and an archive, we encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas to address the multidisciplinary challenges posed by migration and technology.

Our Three Lines of Work

With an aim to foster enhanced understanding and diverse perspectives on the multidisciplinary challenges posed by migration and technology, Translocal Lives strives to create an inclusive space and an archive for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. We do this through three lines of work.

Resources

We are creating a central hub for tools and guides to support research. These tools are designed to facilitate more robust, ethical, and reflective research practices and can be applied beyond the field of migration.

A Space for Diverse Voices

Co-producing and Sharing Knowledge

We prioritize opportunities for participatory work, including the ability of developing unique and relevant initiatives by affected communities. Participatory research approaches that prioritize lived experiences as the foundation for generating knowledge inherently disrupt and undermine the power hierarchies that typically govern knowledge production. These approaches encourage researchers to critically examine their own social positioning and the extent to which their perceived expertise dominates the knowledge generation process.

Ethics in Practice

Translocal Lives welcomes diverse voices from both within and outside academia.

This website aims to curate knowledge in shareable forms that showcase the work of early-career researchers, students, and grassroots organizations and actors.
