This chapter studies how scholars in the ROC had played an essential role in defining ethnic composition and territorial structure of China in general, and in re-identifying the Manchus and repositioning Manchuria in particular. A careful examination of the changes in Chinese scholarly views of ethnicity and borderlands is essential to understanding the formation of the contemporary Manzu community. These scholars are the main historical agents in identifying the Manzu through both the definition of the state and the perceptions of others. Hence this chapter various aspects of their scholarly ventures on Manchu studies for a more comprehensive understanding of the Chinese reconceptualization of Manchu ethnicity and territoriality.

Keywords:   ROC, Chinese scholarly views, contemporary Manzu community, Manchu studies, Manchu ethnicity, Manchu territoriality, reconceptualization
