Lee is currently developing a research project on the History of Women's Football in Queensland; Arts Queensland, QUT, Football Queensland and the State Library of Queensland have supported the project.

He's written two books: Never Say Die: the hundred year overnight success of women's football (NewSouth 2019) and Football in Fiction: a history (Routledge 2020).

Besides the history, development and contemporary state of play in different forms of football, his research interests include digital writing, locative literature and other forms of storytelling.

You can find more of his work on QUT eprints https://www.eprints.qut.edu.au/view/person/McGowan,_Lee_Hugh.html.

And NewSouth Books for his co-authored book with Dr Fiona Crawford.
