Michael DeAngelis
Promoted to full professor

Michael DeAngelis is a professor of and chair of the Media and Cinema Studies program in the College of Communication. Much of his work has focused on stardom and popular cultural manifestations of queerness in cinema. Of his accomplishments at DePaul, he is most proud of the Rome: Film Studies program he created in 2011 and has run every summer since. The program allows him to explore his own Italian heritage, while also introducing students to Italian culture and film.

Maria De Moya
Promoted to associate professor with tenure

Maria De Moya is an associate professor of public relations. Her research interests center around community, identity and international public relations. Of her accomplishments at DePaul, she is most proud to be director of the Latino Media and Communication program. She enjoys working with Latinx students and teaching topics about the Latinx community.

Elissa Foster
Promoted to full professor

Elissa Foster is a professor and director of the College of Communication’s graduate programs in health communication. Foster's areas of research are difficult conversations, including communication at the end of life and at the beginning of life, and qualitative research methods. This academic year she looks forward to taking her first research leave, where she will complete a project that combines her interests in health care systems and narrative writing. The final product is a novel about one day in a hospital from the perspectives of the diverse roles of the people who work there.

Dustin Goltz
Promoted to full professor

Dustin Goltz is a professor in the College of Communication whose research examines and explores issues of queer temporalities and futurity, queer popular culture, the performance of personal narrative and the rhetoric of gay male aging. His favorite things about being a part of the DePaul community are working with his colleagues in the College of Communication, and how fierce, talented and committed DePaul students are.
