  • Sponsors of Literacy is an idea originally proposed by Deborah Brandt in her 1998 article also called “Sponsors of Literacy.” In Brandt’s view, sponsors of literacy are “any agents, local or distant, concrete or abstract, who enable, support, teach, model, as well as recruit, regulate, suppress, or withhold literacy—and gain advantage by it in some way.” Sponsors of literacy are anyone who is involved with literacy, whether reading or writing. Some are directly connected to literacy processes, such as teachers instructing young children to read. Others have less obvious connections, such as government policies that affect how individuals can achieve their literacy potential. These sponsors can promote literacy or stifle it in some way. Some sponsors might not even realize how they affect literacy or even that they affect it at all. Others recognize their involvement in literacy and actively work to promote it. Brandt's article has been cited in more than 250 other scholarly articles. Her sponsors of literacy idea has been used to discuss reading and writing instruction but has spread beyond the academic fields of composition and/or rhetoric. The idea of sponsors of literacy is now part of larger discussions regarding classroom management, social practices, popular culture, comics, bookstores, economics, community engagement, workplace cultures, technologies, and the information age.
