Title: Net Gains? Pacific Studies in Cyberspace

Abstract: The paper explores how the Internet can be used to enhance the quality of teaching
and learning in Pacific Islands studies. It does so with reference to an experimental
web-based interactive module that linked classes at University of Hawai‘i
and Canterbury University in fall 2000 as part of the Ford-funded project, Moving
Cultures: Remaking Asia-Pacific Studies. The paper argues that such interactive
pedagogies can be used to redress some of the power imbalances apparent
in the field of study and help accelerate an ongoing process of decolonization.
