This collection offers a postcolonial critique of the ostensible superiority or originality of `Western' political theory and one of its fundamental concepts, `citizenship'. The chapters analyse the undoing, uncovering, and reinventing of citizenship as a way of investigating citizenship as political subjectivity. If it has now become very difficult to imagine citizenship merely as nationality or membership in the nation-state, this is at least in part because of the anticolonial struggles and the project of reimagining citizenship after orientalism that they precipitated. If it has become difficult to sustain the orientalist assumption, the question arises; how do we investigate citizenship as political subjectivity after orientalism?

This book was originally published as a special issue of Citizenship Studies.
