In the paper I analyze those aspects of biography which have been proclaimed as passé in terms of postmodern perspective, whereas they are still meaningful in certain biographical, cultural or social situations. Hence they can be much better characterized with the help of “traditional” rather than postmodern attributes. us, I concentrate on situations in which collective identity is based on ethnic or national identi€cations, where people look for stable symbolic points to de€ne biography, when the need to have roots is de€ned as one of the fundamental biographical needs. Even in postmodern times culture still oers rich enough resources to create the need for biographical complexity and wholeness. When presenting those traces I concentrate on examples of both biographical and identity work. My €ndings are based on my research experiences.
