Abstract

The thesis investigates cultural negotiation processes within culturally and racially mixed migrant families, where parents of different racial and cultural backgrounds raise a family in Australia. Focusing on parenting approach, food, language, and school life, it explores daily family practices, the influence of the host society, and the impact of 'mixed race' on the identity development of the children. The findings demonstrate that these families jointly create and recreate new forms of cultural identities. For the children, cultural diversity at home, and in the context of Australian multiculturalism, provides a positive environment that generates a cosmopolitan outlook.
