Curriculum Vitae: 

Indra Levy works on modern Japanese literature, with a particular interest in the changes that took place in conceptions of language, style, gender and genre in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Attention to the pivotal role of translations into Japanese informs her work on the development of modern Japanese vernacular style as well as her current research on concepts and practices of comedy. She received her Ph.D. in Japanese literature from Columbia University in 2001. Prior to joining the Stanford faculty in 2004, she taught at Rutgers University.

After graduating from Stanford in 2007, I worked at several nonprofit organizations in Washington DC serving low-income communities. At the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center, I managed the multilingual hotline and assisted low-income Chinese elderly tenants from being evicted from their Section 8 housing. Subsequently, I was the Co-Director of the Advocates Program at the Domestic Violence Resource Project, where I assisted women, who are/were subject to domestic violence by their intimate partners, to seek safety and services. In my spare time, I served on the Steering Committee of the Asian American Health Initiative, and attended health fairs on weekends to educate the community on health issues prevalent in the Asian community. Seeking a long-term career in direct service provision, I decided to pursue medicine. I completed my pre-requisite requirements at the Johns Hopkins Post-Baccalaureate Program, and am currently applying to medical schools. At the moment, I am interning at the World Health Organization of the Western Pacific Region in Manila, Philippines.
