The results of USPAIN have exceeded the Fellow’s expectations, despite the disruptions occasioned by the pandemic of COVID-19. During the Fellowship, Thomas Constantinesco received 8 invitations to discuss the progress and the results of his research in seminars and international conferences. He also secured a publishing contract with Oxford University Press for a scholarly monograph titled Writing Pain in the Nineteenth-Century United States forthcoming in 2022 in the prominent “Oxford Series in American Literary History.” The book is the product of Thomas Constantinesco’s intensive research and writing during the Fellowship. It considers the aesthetic, philosophical, and ethical implications of pain across the works of canonical and less canonical authors from the nineteenth-century United States, from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, and Henry James to Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, and Alice James, as the national culture of pain transformed in the wake of the invention of anaesthesia in Boston in 1846. Towards the end of the Fellowship, Thomas Constantinesco also organized an international conference on “The Labour of Pain in the Long Nineteenth Century.” Speakers included historians, historians of medicine, as well as literary scholars, and the event highlighted the international dimension of the Fellow’s project, as well as the excellence of EU-funded research.
