Why is it not 'istorică' ?

"Mama mea e o istorică" should be accepted (i'm a native romanian speaking)

mea is optional?

I don't think so, "My mother " = "Mama mea". "Mama" = (the) mother, and "mea" = my. If you skip "mea" the English sentence would be:"The mother is historian."

Why can you omit the "o" here?

That's how Romanian is written/spoken. For me, Dutch speaking, when I translate this sentence from Dutch into English, I have to add "a". "Mijn moeder is historicus." = "My mother is a historian." So my language is (in this point) similar to Romanian :-)
