Introduction
Communication and narration: from shapes to devices
This issue of Social Sciences aims to cross-examine contemporary communication and narrative devices in the light of socio-technological developments. It will analyze emerging narratives but also new digital communications to renew research in communication and narratology (trans- or post-) media.
Narrative devices
The concept of device defined by Foucault as a resolutely heterogeneous set, comprising discourses, institutions, [...] laws, [...] scientific statements, philosophical propositions. Based on a binding logic, has long been a canon in Human Sciences.
Thirty years later, Giorgio Agamben sees it as what can control and ensure the actions, behaviors, opinions and speeches of living beings. By narration, we tell stories, perform roles, seduce and manipulate. Narrative devices are part of a certain being in the world. The narrative experience is prolonged and recaptured [...] in pragmatics of the relationship with oneself and the sensible world: in invitation to try [...] another body, another rhythm, another" self. The device is based on a logic of coercion, and narration does not derogate from the rule. By narration, we tell (us) stories, perform roles, seduce and manipulate. The narrative experience is prolonged and recaptured [...] as a pragmatic of the relationship with oneself and the sensible world: in an invitation to try [...] another body, another rhythm, another" self.

Communication forms
Communication, social activity, has an objective structure that is expressed and can be studied in the form of a system of rules.. The study of the underlying structures of forms of communication is an opportunity to show that social life is in fact the whole of human interactions [...]. determined by social forms. It is about understanding and describing " communication forms ", forms and frameworks of exchanges. [...]: formats, supports, ritual [...] devices. The analysis of forms of communication also highlights the social roles linked to situations that make socialization in a group.
