In Nomos of the Earth, Carl Schmitt underscores the intimate connection between law and territory: “nomos is the immediate form in which the political and social order of a people becomes spatially visible” (Nomos of the Earth, 70). Michel Foucault’s complementary point is that “[t]he successes of history belong to those who are capable of seizing these rules, to replace those who had used them, to disguise themselves so as to pervert them, invert their meaning, and redirect them against those who had initially imposed them” (“Nietzsche, Genealogy, History,” 86).

The Zulueta family name is not very well known outside of Basque and some slave trade historiography. However, one of the family members, Pedro José de Zulueta (1809-82) is unique for two reasons. Pedro José de Zulueta was put on trial at the Old Bailey for the crime of slave trading in 1843 and, after he was acquitted, he published a monumental tome about his trial in order to exonerate himself further in the eyes of the London merchant community. It is this publication, The Trial of Pedro de Zulueta, Jun. On a Charge of Slave Trading, that is at the centre of the workshop.
