Jorge Sacido-Romero is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). His research has centred mainly on the reproduction of ideological discourse in literary texts and the tensions it generates.

He has also coedited the volumes National Identities and European Literatures (Peter Lang 2008) and Sound Effects: The Object Voice in Fiction (Brill / Rodopi 2015). In recent years, Sacido Romero has focused on the study of the short story in English, conducting research on the work of Scottish writer Janice Galloway and supervising two research projects: Modernism, Postmodernism and the English Short Story funded by the Galician Regional Government (Xunta de Galicia, 2008-2011) and Women’s Tales: The Short Fiction of Contemporary British Writers 1974-2013 funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (2014-2016).
