Remote Homeland, Recovered Borderland

This chapter studies how the governments and scholars of the PRC have worked collaboratively to recategorize the Manchus as a subnational community and redefine Manzu communal membership, as reflected in Chinese ethnological and borderland studies. With the belief in the righteousness of promoting a national history, the PRC government found its interests aligned with those of many scholars in the fields of history, ethnology, and borderland studies. As part of the state's efforts to recategorize non-Han peoples in the late 1950s and early 1960s, a group of scholars was assigned, or took, responsibility for revising the history of the Manchus and representing the Manzu community in the new regime.

Keywords:   PRC, national history, Manzu communal membership, recategorization, Manchu history, Manzu community
