Title: 
The role of photons in supergravity
Abstract: 

 In the absence of sources we know that electric and magnetic field are virtually interchangeable. This phenomenon is usually called electromagnetic duality. We will review the generalisation of this duality in the context of supergravity theories. Finally we will point out some interesting, recent developments which have originated from electromagnetic duality in maximal four dimensional supergravity.
