- Mercator Network
Established in 1988, the Mercator Institute for Media, Languages and Culture (which includes Mercator-Media) is a research centre at the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, Aberystwyth University, Wales. It hosts a number of projects specialising in languages, creative and literary translation, media, publishing and culture, with much of the activity based around European and world-wide networks.
Minority languages are very much at the forefront of the Mercator Institute's misson, and most of its projects have a specific focus on these languages and their contexts. The Mercator Institute works with a number of institutions, universities, companies, agencies, associations and individuals across Europe and increasingly in other parts of the world. Its current portfolio of projects include Mercator-Media, Literature Across Frontiers (including Transcript Review of Books and Writing), Wales Literature Exchange (including Translation House Wales and Writers' Chain), Broadcasting Compliance Monitoring and Research Unit.
