This talk will aim to analyze how comparative law, as part of modern law, constructs a narrative that creates the identity of the modern legal subject. A narrative that is structured around two intertwined subjects: self and other; the legal subject and the legal barbarian. The talk will also present a genealogy of comparative law that examines the emergence and transformation of this narrative that creates particular ways of imagining the subject, its geographies and history.
