The essays in this thematic issue reflect on late 20th- and 21st-century figurations of ‘upheaval’ to measure the affective and emotional dimensions of some of the most complex challenges of our times. In exploring the discursive potency of the term ‘upheaval’ itself they attend collectively to an ‘optics’ of upheaval – that is, to the ways in which upheaval’s forms are rendered visible or invisible in a variety of contexts.
How worldly is the postcolonial? How postcolonial is the world? These and other, related questions are at the centre of this issue of Thesis Eleven, that brings together some contributions to an international conference that the editors of this volume organized in March 2018 at the University of Delhi.
