The Global Journals Portal contains a selection of seventy journals from around the world dealing with heritage issues in extra-European contexts. In this sense, some publications may be vehicles for colonialist discourses, or they can even be organs of colonial institutions. Nevertheless, they all have in common that they have had an impact in the academic, institutional or disciplinary consolidation of the interest in extra-European territories, at the local and international level. They thus convey extremely diverse historiographical and philosophical positions, which have contributed to highlighting the historical, cultural, ethnographic, archaeological, linguistic and artistic heritage of territories and human groups subject to regimes of colonial domination. Ultimately, many of these journals were edited as part of the invention of postcolonial national cultures and identities, often in the framework of scientific projects at local universities and museums.
