Abstract or Summary
  • Drawing on Deborah Brandt’s “literacy sponsorship,” this thesis examines ways English language learners (ELLs) in the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center (CMLC) act as literacy sponsors, sharing their expertise in language, textiles, and cooking, based on nine in-depth interviews with ELLs at the center. The findings of this thesis are presented in three middle chapters, each addressing a different facet of ELLs as sponsors of literacy at the CMLC, including: 1) how friendships enhance reciprocal literacy sponsorship, where two people are teaching each other; 2) how CMLC cooking classes function as literacy events, in which ELL teachers make arguments about culture and food; and 3) how the CMLC’s textile curator argues for the storytelling power of textiles and promotes cross-cultural dialogue through an annual textile exhibit. I argue that ELLs sponsor literacy in innovative ways, and that friendships formed at the CMLC make literacy sponsorship mutually enriching.
