10 Statements – Isabell Loeschner


Portrait_ISA2My name is Isabell Loeschner and I am a German born country hopper; at the moment I am pursuing a PhD in Sociology at the London School of Economics. I’m looking at new information and communication technologies and how we shape and are shaped by them. In this spirit I have prepared the following statements about myself; their spreading on the web is enabled by the wonder of these new technologies that are really a great proof of human beings’ ability to progress and design (and possibly a reflection of our own tendency to create future problems to be solved again).

My personal motto:

Never stop being curious because … “Knowledge continues to evolve – and we do not know yet what we will know in the future.” (Sir Karl Popper)

10 statements

1. A typical work day begins with… a large bowl of cereal while watching German news to get updated on what is going on in my home country.
2.  I lose track of time… when I lose my watch. I never really lose track of time, my watch is one of my most treasured possessions and I guess I am a victim of its tyranny.
3.  I have always… wanted to move back to the West Coast of the US.
4.  I have never… written a novel (which I intend to do at one point).
5.  Home means to me… when I am cooking dinner with my partner.
6.  I am inspired by… my academic supervisor Professor Judy Wajcman and her colleagues. Big steps to follow.
7.  I would like to meet… Johann Lafer (famous German Michelin Starred chef).  🙂
8.  My worst character trait… is impatience.
9.  My best character trait… is reflexion.
10.  The best advice I was given… was that what I do during my 20s, if done properly, will pay dividend for the rest of my life (Thanks to my lovely American host dad, Jack).

  1. That’s true, at the end of the day sociology is everywhere anyways, also in the business world 🙂

    • My undergrad was in Management, now I’m doing sociology 🙂 Quite a change but necessary!

      • Ah. It’s sort of related. To understand management and a deeper perspective it’s good to know sociology. You have to know why people work the way they do and what factors causes them to relate to others.
