    Cool Collective imaginary

    Please, is "collective imaginary" a correct way to express in English a concept for all cultural references shared by a generally big group of people, as nations or countries?

    Thank You.

    Hi, bhaisahab.

    Well, if Collective imagination is for the image a nation has of itself, plus all the cultural idiosyncrasies, even those images shared by most people through mass media and more... yes, I mean "collective imagination" Thank You
