Riegg, Stephen individual record
Assistant Professor

Stephen Riegg's research and teaching interests include imperial Russian history, nineteenth-century European politics, and nationalism and imperialism in Eurasia. His current book project, "Adversarial Allies: Imperial Russia's Encounter with Armenians, 1801-1914," explores the relationship between the Romanov empire and the Armenian diaspora that populated Russia's territorial fringes and navigated the tsarist state's metropolitan centers. A thoroughly empirical study of Russia's evolving methods of rule, this book uses archival sources from St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia, and Yerevan, Armenia, to reassess the nature of Russian imperialism in the nineteenth century.
