NAM 2019 session: Bridging the Disciplines of Galactic and Extragalactic Archaeology

Elemental abundances in stars and ISM provide stringent constraints on galaxy formation and evolution. This has mostly been used to study our Galaxy through "Galactic Archaeology''. Estimating elemental abundances within external galaxies is more challenging, but current and future observations (e.g. JWST) enable "Extra-galactic Archaeology''. In this interdisciplinary session, we bring together all experts necessary for this quest, linking nuclear physics, stellar evolution, supernova physics, nucleosynthesis, Galactic chemical evolution, observations of early- and late-type galaxies, and cosmological simulations.
