Anne BRUNON-ERNST is Professor in Legal English at Panthéon-Assas University (Paris, France) and researcher at the Institut Michel Villey (Panthéon-Assas) and at the Centre Bentham (ScPo, Paris). Her research interests focus on the British legal philosopher Jeremy Bentham. Lately, Anne Brunon-Ernst's research has been centred around (i) Bentham's Panopticon schemes (Brunon-Ernst (ed.) Beyond Foucault, Ashgate, 2012) and around (ii) utilitarianism in Foucault's thought (Brunon-Ernst, Utilitarian Biopolitics, Pickering & Chatto, 2012). She is now working on the concept of indirect legislation both in Bentham and in its contemporary reappropriations.
