Kate Chandler is a Professor of English at St. Mary's College of Maryland and a founding member of the college's Environmental Studies program. Questions about landscape, ethics, and aesthetics factor into her upper-level course offerings. She also teaches seminars focused on narration and the novel. Her scholarship includes work on teaching outdoors and contemporary environmental writers Linda Hogan, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver. The anthology she edited, Surveying the Literary Landscapes of Terry Tempest Williams: New Critical Essays, was published in 2003; however, recent scholarship has focused on how Beatrix Potter's work as a naturalist influenced her children's books. For a decade, Chandler has written and edited "Nature Notes" for the River Gazette, essays that record her forays into natural history.
