Yevgeniya Traps

Yevgeniya Traps

Part-time Faculty
B.A. & M.A. English, University of Pennsylvania, 2002
Ph.D. English, CUNY Graduate Center, 2013

Yevgeniya Traps teaches a first-year writing seminar called “Artists’ Lives, Artists’ Works” and a first-year research seminar, “Art and the Dream Life.” Both of these take as their starting points an interest in the way individual psychology and social and cultural factors influence the art we make and the narratives we write. She is currently at work on a dissertation entitled “Stimulating Texts: The Politics and Aesthetics of Arousal in Victorian Literature,” which investigates the construction and representation of sexual affect in a variety of Victorian works. Though she is, technically, a Victorianist, her research and teaching interests include the contemporary novel, gender and sexuality, trauma and narrative, and she contributes book reviews to several online and print publications.


Yevgeniya Traps received the Gallatin Adviser of Distinction Award for 2013-2014.
