‘Disciplines cut and chunk human, more-than-human and other-than-human experiences into separate and hierarchized knowledge fields’ (Hughes, 2020), producing a façade that knowledge is coherent, organized and manageable. This micro-moment is an invitation to think/do/make knowledge beyond, outside or otherwise than in disciplines and to find ways to refuse the disciplining of bodiesmindshearts that disciplines so often require. The paper focuses on a speculative intra-action with the questions: How can we work/move together to co-create a more capacious way of knowledge-ing? and how can we enact posthumanist feminist materialism to become in/disciplined? This paper is based on a research-creation event that was part of the Dream Team entitled (Un)teachable micro-moments in post-qualitative research, which focused on how micromoments in the context of post-qualitative research offer exciting possibilities to move beyond boundaries, educational spaces, strict disciplinary discourses, and traditional instructional practices. The micromoment explored in this paper concerns in/discipline through movement. It’s focus on objects-bodies-spaces invites learning through relations and relationality.
