Idea

By dual graviton one refers to the dual of the graviton under electric-magnetic duality (e.g. Curtright 85, Hull 01, Bekaert-Boulanger-Henneaux 02, Godazger-Godazger-Nicolai 13, section 2.2).

Dual gravitons have been considered in particular for manifestly EM-duality-symmetric formulations of supergravity Lagrangians. See for instance (de Wit-Nicolai 13, section 6) and see at 3-d supergravity – possible gaugings.

The spin-2 dual graviton is described by the Curtright field in five spacetime dimensions. Dual graviton can be coupled to topological BF-theory in D = 5 (Bizdadea 09), so it should be also coupled with gravity as a BF theory in extra dimensions D > 4.
