About the Journal of Pissing and Moaning

This is the premier issue of The Journal of Pissing and Moaning, a publication of the Pissing and Moaning Institute. The Institute, a think tank with few rivals and even fewer clients, may be found somewhere on the fourth floor of the University of Rochester’s Rush Rhees Library, and some members of the UR History graduate student community are believed to be its affiliates. The JPM is intended as a medium for the expression of graduate student opinion, humor and satire, and especially material that students are unable, for reasons of prudence, to promulgate through approved channels such as term papers, theses, and so forth. The JPM will also convey and comment on news of interest to the History graduate student community.
