This one day symposium aims to explore the relatively under-developed study of siblings in visual culture and performance.


In drama, family relationships are both ubiquitous and complex and whether a Renaissance revenge tragedy or a play by Harold Pinter, the plot often pivots on the loyalty or jealousy between siblings, confusion caused by twins or conflict prompted by illegitimacy. Whilst there have been many explorations of the role of siblings in Shakespeare, the examination of sibling relationships in its many forms, remains a fruitful area of discussion for plays from the sixteenth to twenty-first century.
