The experiences of Portuguese and Dutch colonial isms, their connectivities, similarities and differences, is still an under studied field in spite of the extensive source materials. The panel looks a t the\nWesterners who administered Timor during the late colonial era (19th -20th centuries), their educational backgrounds, experiences, and motivatio ns, and their role in the legislative and administrative changes that Timor ese colonial society underwent during the period. It explores the possibili ties to write a collective biography of officials as groups of individuals, and strives to capture their mindsets through published or unpublished wri tings. A comprehensive comparison between the two colonial spheres will hav e importance for our understanding of Asian colonialism in general and Timo r in particular, and thus link to postcolonial theorizing about Western exp ansion through grounded cases.
