It is the objective of the European Society for Astronomy in Culture (SEAC) to

- promote the interdisciplinary study of astronomical practise in its cultural context as a topic of considerable importance within the general study of human societies and their relationship to their environment.

- promote research seeking to develop our understanding of the cultural significance of astronomical knowledge through the integration of techniques and methods within the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and other disciplines.
