Claire Parnet is a French journalist.

She is famous for having co-written with Gilles Deleuze (her former teacher) the book Dialogues (1977). It is a book of exchanges, interspersed with questions, where each author responds by contributing a block of text.[1]

Eleven years later, Parnet renewed this experience by doing a television programme with Deleuze called L'Abécédaire de Gilles Deleuze (The ABCs of Gilles Deleuze) where she asked the philosopher to speak on twenty-five themes presented in alphabetical order.[1][2]

In the 1980s she was the editor of the journal L'Autre.[1] Later she served as curator of television cultural shows like L'Hebdo of Michel Field and L'Appartement (with Ariel Wizman) broadcast on Canal +.

She has also been editorial adviser for literary programs of the French television network France 5.
