Chandler received her B.A. from Wellesley College in 2016 with a major in French and a minor in English. In her undergraduate honors thesis, she analyzed representations of enemies, both external and internal, in Irène Némirovsky’s work from World War II. 

At Yale, Chandler hopes to continue her work on the literature and history of the Occupation while considering questions of personal and national identity in literature throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
