Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Benoît Dillet joined the the Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies in 2017. Before joining the University of Bath, he was a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) in Freiburg, Germany. He was also a Lecturer in Politics at the Loughborough University in 2015.

He is currently finishing a book entitled The Right to Problems based on his PhD dissertation, which was awarded the Sir Ernest Barker Prize for the best dissertation in 2013 by the Political Studies Association (PSA). He has recently published his first monograph The Political Space of Art: The Dardenne Brothers, Arundhati Roy, Ai Weiwei and Burial (Rowman and Littlefield, 2016), a collaborative project (co-authored with Tara Puri) on contemporary arts and politics that examines five artists from the perspective of artworks as agents rather than from the aesthetic attitude of the viewer. He also co-edited two books, The Edinburgh Companion to Poststructuralism (EUP, 2013) and Technologiques: La Pharmacie de Bernard Stiegler (Cécile Defaut, 2013). His translation of Bernard Stiegler's Philosophising by Accident: Interviews with Elie During is forthcoming in May 2017 with Edinburgh University Press.
