Pugna racial en la historia del derecho en Chile

In this first part of my research, I focus on a review of Chilean legal historiography based on methodologies and perspectives recently developed at mpilhlt. Specifically, I analyze how legal historians in Chile dealt with indigenous normative orders -such as the Mapuche proper law - when interpreting -and writing down- the evolution of national law and the formation of national legal science since the 19th century. As I show, the denial of a ''racial conflict'' by Chilean historiography explains not only forms of exclusion of non-Western normative knowledge but also invalidates current indigenous agency.
