I was extremely honoured to present my research at the international TikTok & Children Symposium organised by the Crystal Abidin, Jin Lee, and Tama Leaver of the TikTok Cultures Research Network on May 8th 2023 with support from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child.

The Symposium showcased the emergent research on characteristics, climate, concerns, and chances of children growing up with and on TikTok, and discussed these issues with the industry and TikTok studies scholars.

I presented the current problematic I am working on as a part of my research project. The title of the project was ‘Um, Cold Take:’ The memeification of youth experience on TikTok.
