About Me

McKinley Green

Dr. McKinley Green (he/him) is an Assistant Professor of English at George Mason University, where he studies queer rhetorics, community-based research, and sexual health risk communication around HIV/AIDS. His current research project investigates how young people living with HIV communicate about HIV risk on social media and dating applications. McKinley works from a premise that people living with HIV have developed complex rhetorical strategies to communicate about HIV, and that these situated communication practices can offer models for public health institutions invested in HIV risk reduction. His research has been published in Technical Communication Quarterly, Computers and Composition, and Queer Studies in Media and Popular Culture.
