AbstractDiplomatic studies, as an old science, are renewing themselves these last years with the new perspectives brought by the study of literacy. The famous technical way of studying documents is not only used for the discrimen veri ac falsi, but also to bring into new lights the practices of writing in particular societies, in connection with social studies and cultural studies. These two sessions aim to focus on new projects initiated by young scholars at the beginning of their research, in order to help them to connect themselves with the scientific community and to improve their own way of searching.
