The Flagler College Community Lecture Series continues on Tuesday, March 15, with a program by Dr. Wayne Riggs, assistant professor in the Liberal Studies Department, on "Godless Europe? An Evaluation of Religion in Europe during the 20th Century."
Riggs is particularly interested in the role of religion in the evolution of social structures and national identities. He received his Ph.D. and M.A. in Modern European History from Marquette University, and his B.A. in History from Grove City College. He specializes in modern Britain, and his dissertation focused on British religion during the First World War.
Riggs is also a researcher for the Children in Urban America Project, a program to compile an online database of resources relating to children's history in Milwaukee. He is a member of the American Historical Association, the North American Conference on British Studies, and received the Schultz Foundation Research Fellowship in 2008.
