The main form of ASEM activity is the holding of international scholarly conferences on the study of mysticism and esotericism, which allow for an interdisciplinary coverage of these phenomena, including, but not limited to, the historic, psychological, and philosophical approaches. These conferences with the general title «Mystical and Esoterical Movements in Theory and Practice» are «mobile», meaning that they are held in different cities to attract greater attention of the scholarly community to research in mysticism and esotericism.
ASEM publishes the collected materials of these conferences. ASEM also publishes its own online academic journal, Aliter, twice a year. Aliter articles are published in Russian and English.
All questions of organization are decided by the Board — the executive and coordinating organ of the ASEM, which defines the main directions of its activity.
ASEM invites scholars who study esotericism and mysticism to join its ranks. If you have questions about the association, please, send you inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
