New Faculty Member Dr. Joe McGlynn

The Department of Communication Studies is excited to announce the hiring of Dr. Joseph "Joe" McGlynn as its newest faculty member. He will begin his appointment in the Fall 2016 semester and will teach courses in health, interpersonal, and organizational communication. Dr. McGlynn received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014. For the past two years, he served as a Postdoctoral Fellow for the Austin-based Center of Identity, a research center addressing online identity management, privacy, and security. Dr. McGlynn is an alum of UNT, receiving his M.A. in Communication Studies from UNT in 2006 and his B.A. in Psychology from UNT in 2002. Dr. McGlynn's research addresses "the intersection of health communication and technology, with a focus on how communication and technology converge to affect thought, intention, and action in health contexts." His work has been published in the Journal of Health Communication, Management Communication Quarterly, the Western Journal of Communication, and other prominent outlets. "We are very pleased to bring Joe back to UNT," said department chair Brian Richardson. "Not only will he reinvigorate our health communication area, he's also exceptional in the classroom, and has a proven track record in developing productive research collaborations."
