Writing and Rhetoric: Professional and Technical Writing, Rhetoric and Composition, Queer Rhetorics, HIV/AIDS, Health Communication, Risk Communication
Dr. McKinley Green (he/him) 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. This project 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.
