      Abstract

      When psychology and sociology investigate the role of narratives and
      memories in everyday life it is rare that the nation is brought into the
      conversation. Even those who do explicitly draw attention to it, are apt to
      maintain that it is a construction of a myriad of individual actors who thus
      propel the social phenomena in all sorts of new directions at will.
      It will be the contention here that while construction is indeed central to
      this process, it is a mistake to emphasize the spontaneity of an individual
      activity.
