Artlas provides researchers with access to a database that includes catalogues of fairs and exhibitions of modern art from the late 19th century to the present and can produce quantitative interface mapping with this data. The seminars are part of a more general activity of international conferences and publications, including the Artlas Bulletin (a multilingual, peer-reviewed journal). In addition to art historians, the seminar also hosts sociologists, geographers, literary critics, and film and theater historians. Sessions alternate between scholarly invitations of specialists in the history of art globalization and transnational art history (e.g. Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Princeton University), and “Artlas Labs”, i.e. intensive workshops in spatial and digital art history.

Validation for the seminar is customized according to the interests of the student. The seminar is intended for students who have begun research in art history, social science, geography, or related fields.Students selected will be able to attend to an intensive week in Spatial Humanities organized by Béatrice Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel (ENS-PSL) and David Wristley (NYU Abou Dhabi), from 4 to 8 June 2018 in Paris, ENS and NYU Paris.
