Stephen Badalyan Riegg

Assistant Professor
Department of History
College of Liberal Arts

Stephen Badalyan Riegg’s research and teaching interests revolve around the histories of Imperial Russia and the Caucasus.

Riegg will produce a book that explores how and why the Romanov dynasty both encouraged and encumbered European settlement in the Russian empire’s strategically vital periphery between 1800 and 1917 while examining how diverse Westerners benefited or hindered tsarist imperialism.
