520 8  This book explores the concept of complicity with regard 
       to the politics of representation. Over the past decades, 
       complicity critique has evolved and become integral to 
       literary and cultural studies. Nonetheless, the concept of
       complicity remains fundamentally underresearched. 
       Addressing topical and exigent concerns such as white 
       supremacy, war and displacement, child abuse and mentalism,
       this timely volume explores how producers, texts, 
       consumers and critics can either intentionally or 
       unwittingly become complicit in the creation and 
       perpetuation of social harm - and how the structures 
       supporting such complicities can be resisted. The 
       contributors aim to raise awareness and lay the groundwork
       for a utopian 'radical unfolding' that enables not just 
       non-complicity, i.e. the refusal to be complicit, but anti
       -complicity - the active and collective resistance to 
       social harm.
