Carolina Seminar with Stephen Riegg (Texas A&M)
October 27, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Dr. Stephen Riegg is an associate professor of history at the Texas A&M University. His research and teaching interests revolve around the histories of Modern Europe, Imperial Russia, and the Caucasus. His award-winning book, Russia’s Entangled Embrace: The Tsarist Empire and The Armenians, 1801-1914, traces the relationship between the Romanov state and the Armenian diaspora that populated Russia’s territorial fringes and navigated the tsarist empire’s metropolitan centers. He is currently a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress, where he is studying Russian officials’ perceptions of trans-imperial mobility in the Caucasus in the 1800s.
The seminar series is co-sponsored by the Carolina Seminar Program, the UNC Department of History, the Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies, and the Central Asia Working Group. Please note that the participants will give an overview of their projects, but will not read a formal paper. Instead, papers or book chapters will be circulated ahead of time to those who are interested in attending and participating in the discussion. Please contact Dr. Eren Tasar for more information (email@example.com).
