Juwaeriah Siddiqui is a final-year Ph.D. Candidate in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. Her research focus is understanding the second language motivation of languages other than English, especially in the Global South. Having completed her Master’s in Systems Science Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Canada, she is currently working on combining concepts from dynamics systems theory and second language learning to understand complexities in language development. She aims to trace the motivational trajectory of non-Arab speakers of Arabic by exploring their language learning experience and seeing how this impacts their motivation over a period of time. She also looks at language teaching opportunities beyond classroom learning and is interested in including critical pedagogy as an essential tool for the social construction of languages among children. Her research domain includes second language acquisition, complexity theory, and critical pedagogy.
