Juliet Winter is Senior Researcher in Learning and Teaching Development at the University of Winchester. Her role includes leading the TESTA assessment enhancement approach; overseeing and developing TESTA's role in the periodic review process and beyond. Juliet also co-leads on learning and teaching approaches to decolonising the curriculum and oversees the University's participation in the UK Engagement Survey (UKES).

In addition to her learning and teaching role, Juliet is an Associate Lecturer in American Studies. She teaches primarily in areas of African American history and culture and postfeminist popular culture.

Juliet is working to complete her PhD, which examines constructs of racial and gendered identity in the contemporary U.S. Her thesis draws upon transatlantic feminist scholarship and critical race theory to analyse representations of race and gender in American popular culture, politics and sport. Her recent research and publications have considered the cultural significance of Beyonce in relation to contemporary debates surrounding intersectionality, feminism, and representation.
