The Literary and Historical Society is one of the most prestigious and well-known student societies in RMS. Literary societies’ literary activity consists of formal debates on topical issues of the day, but literary activity at RMS also includes original essays, poetry, music, etc. Topics includes classical history, religion, ethics, politics, and current events. RMS believes that the true purpose of this society is to provide a forum within which students from a diverse range of faculties could meet, converse and debate the contentious issues of the day. Different competitions, which run in both the academic terms, welcome students who have not debated before to develop their skills in a friendly and relaxed environment.
