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