This is an article that first got stuck in one journal due to the “lack of reviewers specialized in visual literacy”. I was determined, so I kept it there (too) long. After (my first ever) withdrawal, the manuscript was accepted with only some minor revisions in the “Media Education Research Journal”. And it is finally published under the following title: Acquiring visual literacy skills: Interpretation of journalistic photographs as a tool for contemporary education (abstract).
This study presents the final version of the model for interpretation of journalistic photographs that I worked on through my doctorate. Thus, after a year from my doctoral defense, this publication officially ends all my duties related to that process (I actually promised my supervisor to publish all the papers). And although I keep coming back to some ideas from THE book, it has been very refreshing to finally being able to close this chapter of the so-called my academic career (for which, I still have hopes…).
