Articles that we'll definitely want, but which aren't obviously located in any of the above workgroups.

Country profiles - in Geography, no?. I'd say yes.

Regarding countries, please see the talk page.

Somewhere, we need a list of all countries, showing which have been started, which are missing. It could go into Geography or here, but it must go somewhere! --Martin Baldwin-Edwards 12:06, 17 October 2007 (CDT)

1. Globalisation

  • should be politics, sociology, and economics
  • must be interdisciplinary to avoid narrow bias

2. Development

  • of what? of a country, then economics and geography [development studies are usually in economics]
  • must be interdisciplinary to avoid narrow bias; geographers don't usually deal with it

3. Petroleum or rather Fossil fuels

  • what angle? if substance, then chemistry and geology; can also be economics and politics
  • all angles - must be interdisciplinary for a general article
  • may be split into:
  1. Petroleum economics
  2. Oil (geology)
  3. Coal (Done already, in Earth Sciences...)
  4. Natural gas

last three are already listed under Earth Sciences

4. Ideology

  • sociology, politics and philosophy
  • a real toss-up!

5. Poverty

  • sociology or economics
  • I'd choose sociology if I had to [economic sociology]

6. Death and Dying

  • interdisciplinary but probably best belongs in biology; could also be in sociology
  • death - religion would seem to lay equal claim as biology; dying - about as interdisciplinary as something can get

7. Social Work

  • needs a Social and Public Policy Workgroup [usually located in Social Policy]

8. Women's studies or Gender studies

  • mostly sociology, but can encompass many others
