This chronicle sets out the main steps of the professional life of prominent Kazan-born Uzbekistani historian and specialist of Oriental studies Roziia G. Mukminova. The author first sheds light on the initial impact of the evacuation of historians of Timurid Central Asia (in particular I. P. Petrushevskii) to Tashkent during WWII on the triggering of his hero’s vocation. He then shortly mentions R. Mukminova’s successive contribution to agrarian history of Central Asia in the sixteenth century through the pioneering study of waqf documentation, to the pre-modern urban history of the region through her analysis of qazis’ documents, to the history of craftsmanship and craftsmen in pre-modern Bukhara and Samarqand, and last to the great syntheses of the 1990s on the history of Uzbekistan.
