Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf

This chapter examines Hogarth Press's catalog in relation to British conceptualizations of the “East.” Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press, beginning to establish its credentials as a dedicated forum for anti-colonial writing in the 1920s, contributed meaningfully to Britain's “Eastern” discourse in ways that shed interesting light on issues of cultural and racial identity in Virginia's fiction. Scholars like Laura Marcus, Kathy J. Philips, and Ursula McTaggart have insisted on the interaction of Virginia Woolf's aesthetics with the political discourse so manifest in the Hogarth catalog. The rest of the chapter contextualizes the limitations of Hogarth's anti-colonial publications and uses Clarissa Dalloway's confusion between “Turks” and “Armenians” in Mrs. Dalloway to highlight Virginia Woolf's skepticism of political models that, while benign, would muddle the ruling class's political certainties and force it to see itself as Other.
