Md Mamun Kaioum

As a PhD student, I am investigating digital culture among Bangladeshi diasporic children in Australia. I will conduct study on their everyday digital media practices, mainstream cultural assimilation, digital media negotiation and link with home country context, and parenting in online spaces.

I’ve begun research for a PhD on the effects of digital media on diasporic children living in Australia in their home and community contexts, with a focus on cultural assimilation, negotiation, and continuity with mainstream Australians and their home country surroundings. I am also one of the co-authors of a children’s digital media literacy book produced by the Government of Bangladesh’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

First digital memory

My father bought me a laptop for my sixteenth birthday by borrowing money from his coworkers. My desire to study media and communication was sparked when I started writing for newspapers using that laptop.

The Centre recognises that the examples we set in diversity and inclusion will support young children to respect and celebrate differences in all people. We embed diversity, inclusivity and equality into all aspects of the Centre’s activities and welcome all people regardless of race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and national origin.
