These sessions want to focus on the ‘textual communities’ (B. Stock) as an attempt to define the connections between a group with a strongly motivated identity and the writings that structured it, but also on ‘graphic communities’, a quite new concept: it allows to define models of appropriation of writings by a community, consisting in a whole range of graphic means that can be harnessed by a group not only to administer or manage itself but also communicate, establish discourse, promote memory and create actions and interactions with ‘the outside’ on a pragmatic basis.
