Editorial Note: At the 22nd Annual ASEN Conference, entitled ‘Nationalism, Ethnicity and Boundaries’, Rogers Brubaker delivered the Gellner Lecture entitled ‘Religion, Language and the Politics of Difference’. In response to this lecture, Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN) invited responses from Michael Banton (formerly of Bristol University), Trevor Stack (Aberdeen University), Miguel Centeno and Maria Abascal (Princeton University), Abby Day (University of Kent), and Steven Mock (Balsillie School of International Affairs). These responses appeared in volume 13, issue 1 of SEN in the special feature entitled ‘Continuing the Conversation: Responses to Rogers Brubaker's 2012 Gellner Lecture’. Here, we continue the conversation further with Brubaker's own reply to these responses. We hope you are enjoying this ongoing exchange between these renowned scholars, taking place right here within SEN.
