(p.54) 3 The Making of a Legal Universe
Dilemmas of Modernity
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines how Bolivians appropriate transnational legal discourses in the process of producing a kind of vernacular normativity that shapes, and is shaped by, the dominant patterns of intention in postcolonial Bolivia. The discussions cover law and the production of culture in Alonso de Ibañez; forms of legal practice; the relation between legal institutions and the ordinary social actors for whom law is the primary means through which they enter—and resist—the “modernist sublime”; and the making of a legal universe.

Keywords:   Bolivians, legal discourse, intention, postcolonial Bolivia, legal practice, Alonso de Ibañez
