Uncertainty, Ethics and My Little Pony: How the Moral Tale is Changing and What it Means

Could changes in the way we tell stories reflect wider changes in society? Dr Aleks Krotoski clearly thinks so. A keynote speaker at this year’s OEB Global, she will argue that the classic morality tale is changing. The simplistic ‘top-down’ moral fable of the past is increasingly being replaced by “more participatory forms of moral storytelling.” Perhaps the change reflects society’s attempts to come to terms with a new age of uncertainty – one in which participation and more collaborative forms of learning, information sharing and storytelling are the norm.


Dr. Krotoski holds a PhD in Psychology from the University of Surrey. She is an Emmy, BAFTA and Radio Academy Award-winning academic and journalist, who writes about psychology and technology. As one of the leading national broadcasters and podcasters of her generation, few people are better placed to help guide us around the new age of participation. OEB Insights asked her about the changing face of moral tales and the wider implications for our future.
