Hi everyone! My name is Lourdes Salgado, the newly appointed Santiago lectora for the present year.  I was awarded a BA Hons. in English and Hispanic Philology at the University of Santiago de Compostela, to which I am still linked as I am carrying out some research on English and Galician Literature.

I am currently writing a thesis on English Literature and have recently  been appointed member of the board of editors at the Boletín Galego de Literatura, a publication issued by the Centre Ramón Piñeiro para a Investigación en Humanidades in Galicia. Besides this, I have published several essays and reviews on Hispanic, English and Galician Literature since 2008 and translated from English a book of children’s literature which will soon be published in Hércules Ediciones.
