Abstract: Web 2.0 and its participation-based culture offer rich possibilities for developing websites with museums in the Global South museum. It also offers
spaces for virtual learning, and representing and
expressing one’s culture. However, technology and
partnerships between the Global North and South
have a recolonizing potential. Decybercolonizing
viewpoints and methods are needed to create web
spaces for Global South museums. They bring
attention to virtual spaces that can be colonized by
the ideologies of the Global North.
