Spanish term or phrase:trabajo hormiga
La expresión va, casi aislada, en el siguiente párrafo:
Se han caracterizado diversos tipos de intercambio interdisciplinario organizados en torno a imaginarios compartidos, metaforizados como: auditoría, sostén, juego y trabajo hormiga.
Explanation: The text deals with interdisciplinary cooperation, and the work referred to by the label "trabajo hormiga" must surely refer to basic organizational work (e.g., logistical arrangements, making phone calls, setting up conferences, etc.) that, in the present metaphor, is compared to the coordinated efforts observed in ant colonies.
