(This more or less a question for the StackExchange team.)

I can imagine a few of the reasons why StackExchange would not open a subcomponent for questions on sociology, political science, history and so on. But I wonder: has that possibility ever been submitted, and if so, what reasons led to dismissing it?

Thanks in advance from a political scientist in training.

I'm honestly not sure, but if you can herd the proposal through our open, democratic Area 51 process ..


.. then it will get created.

For example I searched for "sociology" and got this:


There might be others around if you search.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, that proposal is exactly what I was looking for. It seems the discussion has never expanded on the topic, so perhaps there is no audience (yet). $\endgroup$ – F18 Mar 21 '11 at 22:31
