Artlas provides researchers with access to Basart, 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.
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.
