About Nigel Blake

Nigel Blake teaches at the Open University, Paul Smeyers at the University of Leuven Belgium, Richard Smith at the University of Durham, and Paul Standish at the University of Dundee. They originally came together to explore their shared interest in postmodern issues and poststructualist theory in relation to education. Their first collaboration, Thinking Again: Education after Postmodernism (1998), laid the foundations for other projects, including Education in an Age of Nihilism (2000). They have since addressed the educational influence of the European Union, reform in higher education, issues of on-line education and of moral education in their joint projects.
