HISTORY AND ANTHROPOLOGY OF ‘PORTUGUESE TIMOR’, 1850-1975
Here you will find a short online dictionary of biographies about some of the most significant Portuguese authors who published on the history and anthropology of East Timor in the period 1850-1975. We have been privileging representative Portuguese authors, who have entries in our bibliographical database (see our Bibliography available also through Resources). The list thus includes some professional anthropologists and ethnographers but also a number of colonial governors, military officers, administrators, and Catholic missionaries, whose publications are of relevance for the historical and anthropological study of ‘Portuguese Timor’. In preparing the biographical notes we have emphasized those dimensions of their lives and work that bear specifically on the author’s anthropological contributions and connections to Timor. Below on this page you will find the list of authors and links to their biographies online.
Only Portuguese-language biographies are currently available but we also hope to be able to provide English versions in a near future. All biographies are original texts that reflect the authorial voices and research work of the team members and/or invited contributors.
You are welcome to use them and cite them, provided that you please reference them appropriately, for instance in the following form:

Please note that this Dictionary of Biographies is a work-in-progress, and thus some of the authors below still wait for their biographical note to be completed. We expect to be filling the blank spaces in the course of the research project.
