Splitting section: Economic sociology of US immigration[edit]

It seems like a no-brainer to me that the section Economic sociology of US immigration should be split off, either into its own page or added to Immigration to the United States or another similar page. CircleAdrian (talk) 09:39, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Expert input[edit]

Someone with more time than me needs to provide detail about this field. The biggest concepts of contemporary economic sociology such as brokerage, strength of weak ties, structural holes, influentials, isomorphism, etc., are not defined anywhere on wikipedia. They all deserve their own pages with sections describing them here. There are excellent summary articles on the field out there--someone just needs to sit down to translate them here (I will try to do this in the summer, if no one beats me to it first.)DarwinPeacock (talk) 23:13, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

The modern capitalisation of the interpersonal relations[edit]

I have posted a suggestion here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Sociology#The_modern_capitalisation_of_the_interpersonal_relations which could be of relevance for the Economic sociology section... 87.51.147.41 (talk) 08:16, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Self-promotion and undisclosed COI editing[edit]

Content should be based on independent reliable sources, phrased in neutral language, and should not be added by single-purpose editors who are probably closely connected to the organization in question. In recent months there have been multiple attempts to spam as many mentions and self-published articles of the ES/PE as possible. If this is a relevant academic association, it should be possible to provide independent sources to show this relevance. And it shouldn't be necessary to spam to increase the association's online presence in direct violation of WP:PROMO, WP:SPAM and WP:COI. GermanJoe (talk) 13:41, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

"conceptual endeavor to contextualize economic actions, processes and structures in the wider societal context". Of course the definition could probably be expanded a bit. But encyclopedic definitions should define topics in a precise, uninvolved and succinct manner, and not obfuscate simple facts with hollow insubstantial buzzwords. Reverted this part, together with recurring self-promotion in this article. GermanJoe (talk) 12:14, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
