About M³

Meet M³. We are a research team in Urban Studies at the University of Lausanne. We work on cultural flagships, mega-events, improvisation and unruly nature. For us cities emerge as sociomaterial entanglements (Materialities), where past histories, present practices, and future potentialities (Multiplicities) combine. Our field are cities (Metropolis) in Europe, the Global Easts and beyond. We seek to revise the geopolitics of knowledge through decentring the loci of thinking and theory-making.

We are M³.

M³ is headed by Martin Müller, professor in the Department of Geography and Sustainability at the University of Lausanne.

I'm speaking at 2:15 Danish time on the connection between the Russian mega-event decade and war. It's livestreamed (and later on vimeo) if you're interested.

It's awful but important. I'm grateful to be able to talk about it here at #ptg2022.
