Daniel Knorr is a historian of late imperial and modern China whose research focuses on how the circulation of people and objects, the operation of institutions inside and outside the government, and discourse about place contribute to the simultaneous construction of local communities and larger political formations. His first project shows how the social practices and local identity of the elite in Jinan, a city in north China, contributed to and benefited from imperial state-building during both the prosperous eighteenth century and the crises of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
