Sociology in ...
There are at least a couple of articles listed under "Branches of sociology" that are not really branches. They really belong somewhere else, like a list of sociology by country. "Chinese sociology" redirects to Sociology in China. "Contributions to Indian Sociology" is actually the name of a journal, inappropriate for this list. Where should Sociology in China (or any other country) go/ be listed? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 21:13, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Tried to clean up this list: numerous duplicates (some four or more times), redirects, obsolete entries. Several branches erroneously listed in multidisciplinary fields, and a few vice versa. One assumption made in the course of doing so is that, for branches, there should for the most part be one listing per 'branch' only. Does this seem reasonable? Otherwise, there gets to be a lot of redundancy through cross-links. One further step that could be done to verify the listing of branches of sociology would be to compare the present list with the current formally recognized sections within the American Sociological Association. May be some more to add: there are always new sections in formation... Anyway, hope the article is now a little more accurate, streamlined, and up-to-date as a result.
