Raihan’s scholarly works attempt for a critical intervention into theorizing Asian American diaspora in U.S. popular culture. He investigates the formation of Asian American diaspora, especially its integration into the neoliberal “melting pot” or “salad bowl” of U.S. popular culture—in and through the significant patterns of negotiations, conformity, resistance, and so on—which he calls  “Everyday Asian Americanism”.

His research and/or teaching interests include but are not limited to the following: social justice, critical pedagogy, political economy of neoliberal multiculturalism, globalization and empire, third world politics, postcolonial studies, transnational feminism, labor and citizenship studies, political movement analysis, cultural studies, media and representational politics, gender and sexuality, queer theory, literary and critical theories, English and American literature, Bengali poetry, world literature, etc
