In search for the answeres this article applies novel Digital Huminities methods to the field of elite studies in Taiwan. To set the stage, I will introduce the current state of the field, followed by a two-part analysis. First, I will explore the dynamics of intermarriage among elite family networks. This will demonstrate the heretofore unrecognized importance of families in an intermediary position between the universally acknowledged top layer of Taiwanese elites and those occupying the lower fringes of elite status. Second, I will explore different fields of activity—social, economic, political, and cultural—in which elite families were involved. In the process, I will clarify and define what kinds of capital allowed these families to gain their prestigious positions.
