About Me

McKinley Green

Dr. McKinley Green (he/him) is an Assistant Professor of English at George Mason University, where he studies queer rhetorics, technical communication, and sexual health risk communication around HIV/AIDS. His current research project investigates how young people living with HIV communicate about infectious disease risk. McKinley works from a premise that people living with HIV have developed extensive rhetorical expertise to communicate about the risks that are most significant to their lives, and that this situated expertise offers a model for public health institutions contending with the HIV epidemic. His research has been published in Technical Communication Quarterly and Computers and Composition, and his work will appear in The Routledge Handbook of Queer Rhetoric and upcoming issues of Rhetoric Review and Rhetoric of Health and Medicine.
