HISTORY AND ANTHROPOLOGY OF ‘PORTUGUESE TIMOR’, 1850-1975.
We here offer a bibliography of published works that bear on the history and anthropology of Timor Leste during the Portuguese colonial period. Although we also include some British and French works, we have privileged Portuguese-language publications in order to represent the diversity, tensions, and potential of Portuguese colonial knowledge about Timor in the period between c. 1850 and 1975.
In collecting these works we try to cover, as exhaustively as possible, the eclectic landscape of Portuguese historical and anthropological publications about East Timor. We have considered history and anthropology broadly, and selected only those publications that, in our view, may include potentially useful information for students of history, anthropology, and/or the history of human sciences of East Timor during that period. Thus the list includes academic and non-academic works of historical, ethnographical, archaeological, linguistic, or bioanthropological character, from a variety of authors and literary genres, and expressing many different political and epistemological agendas.
