The Next SAM Seminar
School of the Arts and Media

Collin Chua 

When Tuesday 28 Aug, 3.30pm - 5pm
Where Cinema 327, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Sydney

A desirable narrative

Be entrepreneurial—this is increasingly an imperative addressed to all of us. To be entrepreneurial is a mindset, an attitude, a way of thinking; it is to inculcate a passionate spirit, which you are to develop within yourself, and then to exhibit. Being entrepreneurial offers a sense of agency, and extends the possibility of wealth-creation in an age of precarity. It is a discourse which rationalizes modern subjects—you, too, can be entrepreneurial, and thus be creative, liberated, and successful. This seminar discusses being-entrepreneurial—as a contemporary subject position within communicative capitalism, operating as a coping mechanism for the fragmentation and disruption of traditional work arrangements and structures.

Collin Chua lectures in media and PR & advertising at the School of the Arts and Media, UNSW Sydney. His current research addresses cultures of innovation and entrepreneurship.

This seminar will be followed by drinks and nibbles, then a very special 4S International Roundtable on First Nations Activism and Media from 6pm-8pm. Convened by Tanja Dreher (UNSW), speakers include Bronwyn Carlson, Claudia Magallanes-Blanco and Kyle Powys Whyte.
