Abstract

What do corporate subjectivities look like when the corporation is seen as the nation-state? This essay explores the notion of corporate personhood through an examination of the conjunction of neoliberal, corporate, and national ideologies, whose typically distinct genealogies converge in the Singaporean context. Through a reading of Conversations on Coming Home: 20 Singaporeans Share Their Stories, a booklet specifically designed to recruit Singaporeans living abroad to return home, I propose the notion of “coming-of-career” stories as a critical term for understanding the ways lives are constructed and valued according to neoliberal ideals.
