Professor Emeritus

Part-Time Faculty

Raymond Foery has been teaching at the college level for 50 years and is currently Professor Emeritus of Communications at Quinnipiac University, where he founded the media production program, presently incorporated into the department of Film, Video, and Media Arts. After receiving his undergraduate degree in philosophy and literature from Notre Dame, he went on to study film at Columbia University, where he wrote his dissertation on Louis Lumière and the invention of cinema. It was at Columbia that he initially became an admirer of the work of Alfred Hitchcock, an interest that has led to several presentations at the annual Popular Culture Association conference. He published Frenzy: the Last Masterpiece in 2012. At Quinnipiac, he continues to teach an occasional senior seminar on Hitchcock. His other research interests include international and independent cinema, including the American avant-garde, and the process by which novels or plays are translated into works of cinema. He has recently offered a senior seminar on Film Noir. Before coming to Quinnipiac, he taught at Bard and at Dartmouth, where he was a director of the film studies program. He also founded and edited a New York arts journal, The Downtown Review, and directed an independent film and video foundation in Vermont. He has recently written a chapter on Clint Eastwood’s film The Bridges of Madison County for Clint Eastwood, Actor and Director and a chapter on Invictus in Clint Eastwood: Further Reflections.

Professor Foery resides in Hamden with his wife and their two cats, Ben and Franklin. He has three children and two marvelous grandchildren.
