> One such collaboration between New College professors hailing fromdifferent academic fields involved
> philosophers of religion Douglas Langston and Mike Michalson, analyticphilosopher Aron Edidin, political
> scientists Frank Alcock and Eugene Lewis, and cultural historian LeeDaniel Snyder. The six New College
> professors coauthored an interdisciplinary study entitled "The Lion, theWitch, and the Whorehouse: Male
> Prostitution and the Works of _C.S. Lewis_(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.S._Lewis) " (2002). The research offered a _poststructuralist_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poststructuralism) _cultural studies_
> analysis critical of Lewis' Narnia books and Christian apologetics. TheNew College research team
> concluded that the representation of gender relations in Lewis' works ismisogynistic to the point of male
> homoerotism and glorifies patriarchal domination, especially over subjectsseen by other members of
