Clancy Wilmott Awarded Hellman Fellowship

Established by the late F. Warren and Chris Hellman in 1995, the purpose of the Hellman Fellows Fund is to support substantially the research of promising assistant professors who show capacity for great distinction in their research.

Our own Clancy Wilmott (Geography) was awarded a 2022 Fellowship for "Reorienting the Map: Alternative Cartographies for Alternative Futures."

Clancy researches critical cartography, new media and spatial practices. The philosophy of Reorienting the Map is to understand the cartographic as a way of thinking, bound up with colonial science and technology, but which is not beyond redemption and imaginative anti-colonial politics (Lucchesi, 2018), and urgently needs to be tackled: a spatial representational tool through which we might consider modes of decolonisation by reimagining both the past, present and future of the Bay Area, as well as the shaking up the theoretical foundations of the cartographic and cartography itself.
