Yevgeniya Traps’s teaching and research focus on the ways in which individual psychology and social and cultural factors influence how art and narrative are made and perceived. Although she is technically and by training a Victorianist, she is also interested in the contemporary novel and in contemporary visual culture, and she contributes book reviews to several online and print publications. She was the recipient of the Gallatin Adviser of Distinction Award for the 2013-2014 academic year.
