JOB, a sub-element available within OCCUPATION and also under MEMBER, within FAMILY, is meant to capture the types of non-literary employment done by women writers and their families. It encloses just a word or phrase describing the job. We are interested in comparing the kinds of jobs women did in different historical periods and the kinds of jobs family members did. We want to facilitate research, for example, on the influence of living in a parsonage on women writers and would therefore like to track women who had fathers and mothers who were ministers. The tag has one optional attribute, REG, which standardizes the name of a job. By regularizing, the attribute REG serves to group jobs: professor, reader (Britspeak), lecturer are all REG=academic.
