"by studying their relations with and across space and place". Just putting something because it belongs to a certain place is stretching it. By that reasoning, virtually everything falls under the geography label. When you get so broad in your definition, the term loses all meaning.

There's two types of geography: physical and human. Physical geography is a lot about maps, but human geography is mostly culture and how people interact with the land, which is basically social studies.

The only one on here that is not geography is the Islam/halal question, as it is independent of any location. Everything else is location-specific and therefore geographical.

culture is definitely tied to certain regions and questions about religion or dietary laws are about culture. Anything related to culture, religion, demographics, etc. is also a part of geography.

"What is the African American dialect spoken by two characters in Airplane!, the 1980 comedy film?" That is a cultural question, and I would never, ever call that a geography question.

Only because the way you phrase the question makes it sound like an entertainment question. And maybe also because the nature of the film and the way most people think of the dialect referenced in it makes the question seem un-serious... and geography is thought of as something more bland. You could easily phrase a question about jive talk or even about Hollywood films that would sound like a proper geography question. Maybe just not that specific.

sort of. Questions about astrophysics, cosmology, and the core of the Earth are not under the umbrella of geography, except when those things interact with the surface of the Earth.

many years ago I spent hours in the beautiful cathedral/Mosque of Hagia Sophia but only heard it called Hya or Hia .......Sophia. Tried entering a selection of this spelling for 2 minutes and bombed out, I think if you put Sophia in the answer it would not be far wrong.
