Text Semantic Similarity, with Applications

Description: In this paper, the authors present a knowledge-based method for measuring the semantic-similarity of texts. Through experiments performed on two different applications: (1) paraphrase and entailment identification, and (2) word sense similarity, the authors show that this method outperforms the traditional text similarity metrics based on lexical matching.

Unsupervised Large-Vocabulary Word Sense Disambiguation with Graph-based Algorithms for Sequence Data Labeling

Description: This paper introduces a graph-based algorithm for sequence data labeling, using random walks on graphs encoding label dependencies. The algorithm is illustrated and tested in the context of an unsupervised word sense disambiguation problem, and shown to significantly outperform the accuracy achieved through individual label assignment, as measured on standard sense-annotated data sets.

Making the Man: 'Suiting' Masculinity in Performance Art

Description: This paper examines research on the significance of clothing, specifically, the "men's suit," in select examples of contemporary American performance art. Drawing on sociology and art history, it considers the suit as a form of communication, and it suggests that performance artists Chris Burden, Paul McCarthy, and Vanessa Beecroft have used the "men's suit" to explore and communicate something about masculinity as a socially and culturally constructed hegemony.
