Does anyone know if the periodical "Hamlet Studies" is still published,
and, if, so, how one may subscribe?

I've been teaching Bartholomew Fair, and my students were curious about
the fact that Ursula smokes ("Where's my pipe now? Not filled?  Thou
arrant incubee," she says to Mooncalf in 2.2.88-9).  Is Ursula flouting
gender conventions by smoking?  I have a vague recollection that
Elizabeth used to smoke with Ralegh, but at some point smoking became a
strictly male prerogative.  I'd be grateful for any information any list
members would have on attitudes to smoking, or perhaps other scenes in
early modern drama where characters smoke.

Thanks.
