His PhD thesis titled, “Transformations in Bangla Literature and its Public Life: A Comparative Study of Public Sphere In Colonial Bengal” looked into the transition in 19th century reading culture and its public life beyond the axiomatic frame of parlour and the street by closely following the new professions and formations such as literary societies or sabhas, publishing houses and the new readers emerging from schools and households, on streets and in railway stations. Sayantan has been an Erasmus Mundus Fellow at the University of Oxford during 2015-16. He has developed content for a number of epg-pathshala MOOCs. He has authored articles in prestigious peer reviewed journals, participated and organised numerous national and international conferences.
