Abstract

In the life of nations, people address themselves and their collective identity
in historically specific and changing ways. There are styles and registers with
which people talk about themselves as a coherent group. Identities are
addressed with certain valorized narratives and themes and legitimized with
epistemologies under which people know themselves, and know that they
know themselves. These ways of speaking about identity have a politics and
a sociology, expressing changing social circumstances as the changing registers
of national address.
