Seminar Title: "Semi-Resolved Stellar Populations in Space & Time"
Historically, the analysis of stellar populations has been pursued in two limiting cases: spatiallyresolved
stellar populations in the color-magnitude diagram, and integrated light observations of
distant systems. In between these two extremes lies a rich and relatively unexplored realm of
observational signatures. In this talk I will describe our recent efforts to develop techniques and
analyze datasets exploiting the "semi-resolved" stellar population regime, both spectroscopically
and temporally. These new tools will likely play an important role in maximizing the science
returns from next generation ground and space-based facilities.
