Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl
is a French collective of authors and activists formed in 1999. The group published two journal volumes in 1999 and 2001 (in which the collective author “The Invisible Committee” first appeared), as well as the books Théorie du Bloom and Théorie de la jeune fille.
“Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl” contains excerpts from Tiqqun's forthcoming book
of the same title, to be published by Semiotext(e) in June. It was produced by Triple Canopy as part of its Immaterial Literature
project area, supported in part by the Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
