This chapter explores some of the problematics of multidisciplinarity in relation to Virginia Woolf by focusing on visual materials. In particular, it considers how visual archival materials can move literary scholarship into multidisciplinary terrain by discussing photographs, photography, and signature. It also analyzes Woolf's fascination with the relationship between subject and object. In addressing the relevance of multidisciplinarity to notions of authorship and signature in Woolf, the chapter turns to critics such as Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Rancière. It also explains how Woolf's albums give her the opportunity to create significant relationships between figures in her life and between her differing selves. Finally, it examines how arts such as painting, photography, cinema, architecture, graphics, and advertising offered Woolf differing representations of subjectivity.

Keywords:   multidisciplinarity, visual materials, photographs, photography, signature, authorship, albums, subjectivity, arts
