Re-Building an Imperial Elite: Local Government Schools in Dali, Yunnan (1247–1675)

Eloise Wright
In 1247, the Mongol prince later known as Khubilai Khan conquered the Dali Kingdom, a small state in the south-eastern foothills of the Himalayas. Over the next four hundred years, elite families in the Dali region became integrated with the society of the central plains. In this paper, I argue that engagement with imperial educational practices and institutions led the elite of the Dali region to constitute itself as a local elite that belonged to the empire-wide ruling class. At the same time, it intensified distinct identities based on family histories and the spatial organisation of the Dali region.
