Disagreements are an integral feature of interdisciplinary projects. Drawing on the conflicts over the construction of an anti-tsunami park after Chile’s 2010 earthquake, I speculate about the capacities of dissenting –or the moment of feeling differently– for the invocation of a political otherwise for those that strive to persevere as etho-political subjects. Further, I identify a number of experimental methods that might be useful to empower dissent as a moment of democratic expansion provoked in and by interdisciplinary projects.
