The introduction to the section on governance, policy and management in the Handbook of Historical Studies in Education: Debates, Tensions and Directions uses contributions from section authors to map the contested terrain of governance, policy and management and to discuss scholarly approaches to circulation(s) through which notions of governance, policy-making and management have been and continue to be dif/fused. It discusses government and governmentality, policy as text and policy as discourse and the shifting terminology of management around administration and leadership. It considers how circulation(s) and dif/fusion(s) of practices of governance, policy and management have been understood through postcolonial, transnational and global analytics, and spatial frames. It comments on Big Data as an avenue for research and a form of governance.
